The training you get is nothing short of fantastic – including a management training a curriculum, dedicated mentoring, and participation in a leadership training program in conjunction with Emory University.  You will also get great exposure to leaders throughout the enterprise.  The success of the program perpetuates ample visibility due to partnership requests from senior leadership.

While in the Audit Management Program you split your time between high impact risk-based Operational Audits and SOX readiness and compliance work.  None of the work is checklist-y and you will get ample opportunity to step up and showcase your abilities.
