Midterms and the Annual Fraud Summit are approaching! The UT Dallas Chapter is excited to have the opportunity to host the Fraud Summit in March.

Last month, the UT Dallas Student Chapter members participated in the Dallas IIA Speed Interviews. We would like to thank those who helped organize and conducted the interviews to make the event such a success!

Additionally, we have already held several chapter receptions and had the pleasure to host many great organizations. We would like to thank GM Financial, Protiviti, RSM, and Lennox International for taking the time to speak to our student chapter members.

For the Student Spotlight, we would like to present student chapter member Emily Basile! She is a very active member with strong determination to be successful in the internal audit profession. Find out more about Emily and her passion for internal audit below!

Student Spotlight

Emily Basile


Background: I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, but I have lived in Texas for as long as I can remember. I initially started at Collin College where I earned my Associates degree in General Studies with a certificate of completion in the Business Field of Study. I then transferred to the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) where I earned my B.S. Accounting degree in December 2018. I started my M.S. Accounting degree at UTD in August 2018 and will be graduating in December 2020. I have already passed Part 1 of the CIA exam, and plan on sitting for Parts 2 and 3 in the Fall of 2020. Right now, I am currently working on the CPA exams, and will be sitting for them in the Spring and Summer of 2020. Two fun facts about me are that I enjoy crocheting and I volunteer at the Plano Animal Shelter as an administrative assistant/greeter.    


Why Internal Audit?: I discovered internal auditing when I was in my senior year at UTD thanks to the UT Dallas IIA/ISACA/ACFE Student Chapter. One of the things that initially attracted me to internal auditing is that it allows us to see an organization from a bird’s eye view while also being able to delve into various aspects of the business to make recommendations and help them improve. One of the main things I love about internal audit is that it is a career path that provides opportunities to grow, challenge myself, and learn new things, while also allowing me to help an organization in an essential way, which is what I am looking for in my career.
