Master in Financial Auditing


The purpose of the audit is to examine in detail the financial information of a particular company for the purpose of determining the integrity of the internal control system reflected in the financial statements.
Audit is increasingly centralized in guiding decision making for better efficiency and effectiveness of the company in the procedures adopted than in penalizing the error that has occurred.
In this course participants will be aware that in a context of global financial and economic uncertainty, lack of confidence in financial markets and collapse of large multinational organizations, the role of supervisory and control bodies as well as methodologies and mechanisms for strengthening governance and institutions' control systems become essential and reinforce their importance.
