Sunway-TES, a subsidiary of Sunway University College, has recently sealed an agreement with The Institute of Internal Auditors Malaysia (IIA Malaysia) to be the only tuition provider of the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) qualification in Malaysia. With the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signed, Sunway-TES will collaborate with IIA Malaysia in preparing the internal auditors in Malaysia to attain a globally-recognized CIA qualification.

The MOA was signed on 21 October 2009 by Mr. Teo Ee Sing, Executive Director of Sunway-TES and Mr. Walter Sandosam, Chairman of the Academic Relations Committee of IIA Malaysia. This significant moment was witnessed by Ms. Elizabeth Lee, Executive Director of Sunway University College, and En. Hashim Mohammad, President of IIA Malaysia. Also present at this memorable event was Professor Robert Bignall, Vice-Chancellor of Sunway University College, Mr. Richard Chambers, the President of IIA Global, U.S., and Mr. Joseph Lim, CEO of Sunway College Kuching.

The CIA is a certification and a professional development programme offered by the Institute of Internal Auditors, U.S.A for auditors who wish to enhance their competency and professionalism required in the field of Internal Auditing. The demand for the CIA professionals is high, given the amendment of the Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance that requires all listed companies on Bursa Malaysia to set up their respective internal audit functions. Also, there is a need to constantly meet the global professional standards issued by the Institute of Internal Auditors.

In Sunway-TES, students of the CIA programme are given the opportunity to study the CIA exam materials in a structured manner. They are guided by a team of highly qualified CIA trainers who will not only help the candidates to pass the exams required for certification, but expose students to the best internal audit practices and global standards.

To find out more about the CIA programme, contact Sunway-TES at 03-74918622 ext. 3309 (Ms. Juliana) / 3734 (Mr. Alex Lee) or email enquiries to alexl@sunway.edu.my.
