Friday, December 4, 2015

The Department of Accounting and Taxation in the Peter J. Tobin College of Business at St. John’s University is pleased to announce that its Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) and its Master of Business Administration-in Accounting (MBA-A) programs as submitted to ISACA, were found to be in alignment with ISACA’s Model Curriculum for IS Audit and Control, 3rd Edition.  Graduates of either program qualify for one year work experience toward the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) designation.  Both programs submitted to ISACA included the concentrations in information systems: audit and control.  The Information Systems: Audit and Control concentration requires students to complete the following courses as part of their graduate degree:

•    ACC 662, Accounting Information: Governance and Audit
•    ACC 663, Accounting Information: Systems Development and Operations
•    ACC 665, Accounting Information: Protection of Assets

As an independent, nonprofit, global association, ISACA (formerly known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association) engages in the development, adoption and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and practices for information systems.  As the information systems audit and control profession continues to evolve, the MSA and MBA-A programs will meet the needs of the professional community by continuing to provide the marketplace with graduates possessing the skills and knowledge that the profession needs.  

The ISACA Model Curriculum for IS Audit and Control, 3rd Edition provides a streamlined approach for providing the education required to develop the skills needed to be employable in the information systems audit and assurance profession.  The Department decided to incorporate an information systems audit and control curriculum for those professionals wishing to change their career path or upgrade their skills for job enhancement, as well as for those who are interested in obtaining an information systems audit education.
