Staff Unit: Internal Audit


The role of Internal Audit as an instrument of corporate governance is to support the Chancellor in his supervisory function. The Internal Audit staff unit works independently and is not involved in ongoing business processes. We receive our assignments from the Chancellor of RWTH via the internal audit charter.

We are guided by the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. Our mission is to enhance and protect the University’s value by providing risk-based and objective assurance, advice, and insight.

We are committed to improving operations and procedures within RWTH Aachen University and to providing advisory services to all university institutions.
