Statement of Need

Faced with growing challenges in the management of organisations, the field of auditing has changed over time. Risks characterize the conduct of business today, and some of these threaten business survival.
Organisations have to respond to the many challenges on a timely basis. Managers are expected to re-affirm their organization’s financial commitment, dedication to growth, success and focus to meet their objectives. They need to be constantly assessing the risks associated with changes taking place in business arena and mitigate against them.
