Quote: The LSU CIA provides the resources necessary to excel in today's business world. The program instills the professionalism, respect, and behavior required to become employable. Internal audit views a company through a holistic lens, which is an unparalleled opportunity for any college graduate because most entry level positions are highly technical and specific. I quickly realized within a few weeks of working the powerful advantage the LSU CIA gives its students.

In addition, the program provided me with unparalleled networking opportunities. Some of my team members were LSU CIA graduates. This similarity allowed my new teammates and I to quickly bond. This program has made a name for itself and words cannot describe the value.

Quote: The LSU CIA Program is truly the most unique course I have ever taken. When looking back on my academic career, this program is the foremost reason for my personal and professional development. It challenges you and exposes you to every tool necessary to be successful in the business world. The LSU CIA program has helped me to distinguish myself from others and has added the most significant and invaluable experience to my academic and professional career. Specifically, I spent the summer of 2011 with Coca-Cola Hellenic in Europe. I worked in Athens Greece, Bucharest, Romania, and Vienna Austria. In addition, I was able to travel to Rome, Barcelona, Istanbul, Paris, Salzburg, Geneva, London, and Prague on my free time. The CIA program was the reason I was able to interview for this once in a lifetime opportunity with Coca-Cola and I have accepted a full-time position with them in Europe beginning January 2012.
