Just six years after graduating from Pitt State with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with majors in accounting, management and marketing, Kayla Carter was recognized as one of the world’s top young internal auditors.
In the June 2013 issue of Internal Auditor Magazine, Carter, 28, was listed as one of the “Top 20 Under 30,” a list of professionals from around the world who the magazine describes as the “next generation” of internal auditors.
“Their fearlessness, professionalism, and passion for their work is driving the profession to new heights,” the magazine states.
Carter, a manager of IT consulting and internal audit at Protiviti in Overland Park, said she was surprised and honored to be among the prestigious group.
While at PSU, Carter completed the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Internal Auditing Education Partnership Program. She was also a member of the PSU Honors College and an officer in the PSU IIA Student Chapter.
Carter noted that conducting a third-party media buying contract review for an international retailer, which resulted in a cost recovery of more than $250,000, was another career highlight.
