Overview of Program:

The Wycliffe Global Alliance and SIL International have an Internal Audit Department led by the International Audit Coordinator that conducts internal control reviews. These reviews help ensure these organizations have a high level of stewardship and accountability in their own related organizations. The work of the Internal Audit Department is in addition to and supplements the work done by external auditors. The department does internal control reviews in over 50 offices and departments in the worldwide Wycliffe and SIL community.

Students will work in an office for 3 weeks participating in internal control review. Students follow a review guide provided by the International Audit Coordinator and after completing their work, send him/her a completed guide and a draft report. The International Audit Coordinator and staff review the completed guide and draft report, make appropriate adjustments and issue the report. Students do not issue any reports or attest services for which they would need to be licensed CPA.

After this international experience, Accounting students would have gained experience working for a non-profit organization, with centers placed across the globe. The practicum would provide real-life experience in auditing an organization.

This program is a great way to see Bible Translation in progress and meet the devoted people doing it. This could be a great opportunity for you to make a significant contribution to God's kingdom.
