Internship Program Overview

The Internal Audit Department offers an internship to junior accounting majors in Rutgers Business School-Newark and New Brunswick entering their senior year. We provide an opportunity to sample a career in the public accounting and internal audit professions. The internship lasts one year, extending from the summer of the students' junior year through the spring of their senior year.

Experience Auditing Firsthand

Interns will be exposed to both internal and external auditing. During the summer, their work resembles the financial audit responsibilities of a first-year auditor in one of the major public accounting firms. The intern's main assignment during the summer is assisting the public accounting firm, KPMG LLP, during its annual examination of the university. During the academic year, they will change your focus to Internal Audit's operational and consultative reviews, as well as special projects.

A Diversified Experience

The internship presents students with the opportunity to gain experience in the following areas:

  • KPMG Assistance
  • Financial Audits
  • Operational Audits
  • Information Technology Audits
  • Consultative Engagements
  • Compliance Reviews
  • Data Analysis

Develop Professional Skills

Students will have a chance to work with a group of certified professionals having diverse backgrounds, knowledge, and experience. Some started their careers with major public accounting firms and then moved on to the private sector; others have had long careers in universities, smaller firms, and private companies. Through interaction and experience interns will learn interpersonal skills, writing skills and work habits that will assist them in their preparation for a professional career. We have a long history of helping students get started in their careers. See our Hall of Fame.
