TeamMate solutions work well in a university setting
Located on the island of Oahu, this reputable Hawaiian University is home to 2,500 students representing over 70 countries. Being part of a small campus gives students ample opportunity to gain educational experiences outside of the classroom through internships, research projects, and real-life work experience.
The university’s Director of Compliance and Internal Audit has been instrumental in implementing a student employment model within the internal audit department. The program not only resources internal audit engagements for the university but also provides accounting majors with a high-impact work experience that reinforces educational concepts. The Director of Compliance and Internal Audit typically has four-to-six students working 19 hours each week when school is in session and full-time during breaks.
While undergoing a complete staff turn-over every 18-24 months as students graduate can be challenging, using an intuitive, user-friendly audit management system, like Wolters Kluwer TeamMate, makes training and teaching much easier.
