Who wants (needs) the Qualification in Internal Audit Leadership (QIAL)?

2 Oct


This new Internal Audit qualification (QIAL brochure) was introduced in 2015. About one year on, in Germany, only 1 person is qualified as QIAL:


My little poll from September 2016 indicates that there is very little interest – if any – among practitioners in Germany to pursue this qualification.

Is that different anywhere else in the world? I would be keen on getting a broader picture from the Internal Audit (IA) community. My concern:

Does the plethora of IA degrees and designations dilute the value such certification could have and impair the identity of IA professionals on whom they are bestowed?

Views welcome.
