This question can be answered a couple of different ways. If you are shooting for an audit manager position in public accounting, you will need a CPA and anywhere from 5-7 years experience in auditing. An accounting degree followed by a Masters in Accounting or MBA will get you in the door with a public accounting firm, but the CPA and a good deal of experience will be required to make manager. If you are shooting for a position in Internal Audit, the CPA is not necessarily required, but is preferred. The Certified Internal Auditor or CIA designation is preferred and in some cases required. Experience in public is also generally preferred. Educational requirements are similar, though a good internal audit manager must be familiar with the industry, the company and its products to be successful. Hope that helps.
