GENESIS OF ISA COURSE
With IT becoming an integral part of the strategic business scenario, the Institute perceives an increase in the use of technology in Finance. The Council of the Institute has commissioned an IT Committee to introduce the Information Systems Audit (ISA) course. The highlights of the course are a contemporary curriculum, industry networking and cutting-edge technology. It focuses on comprehensive development of professional skills, through a well-devised curriculum and training methodology. ISA not only empowers Chartered Accountants to drive information development and system design, but also helps them to understand the finer nuances of system control and evaluation.
With the new challenges threatening the traditional domain, the council of the Institute - by commissioning ISA course - is not just coping with the demands of IT dynamics. It also seeks to leverage technology to enhance the professional skills of its members. The council is widening the scope of professional service to business, government, service organisations and society at large.
