Here is a letter I recently received from one of my former AIS students:

 

Hi Dr. Dehning,

     How are you? In all honesty, I have to admit that I was less than enthusiastic about AIS last spring (along with pretty much everyone else in the class I'd say). This summer, I interned at (Big 4 CPA Firm) in auditing, and I have to say that the information I learned in AIS was about the only relevant information I learned in my accounting classes that I could directly apply to my auditing work (bearing in mind I had not yet taken the auditing class). At (Big 4 CPA Firm), a big component of my work was understanding and evaluating internal controls processes (or in many cases, the lack of them). In training, I found out that I was one of the very few new interns who had already taken AIS, so I had a big advantage over the others. Plus, your class really made the topic make a lot of sense. It definitely helped me a lot on the job, so I just wanted to say thanks!

            Sincerely,

                   (Former AIS Student)
