University Internal Auditor’s Office

Mr. S.G. Masuso is the first University Internal Auditor (UIA) after the University of Malawi Council had upgraded its internal audit function to a strategic level in response to the evolution of internal auditing from an inspection-focused, box-ticking process to an essential activity in organizations around the world.

An accountant by profession Mr. Masuso also holds an MSc in Audit Management and Consultancy (Birmingham City University) and Certified Internal Auditor certificate awarded by The Institute of Internal Auditors Inc., (USA). Before joining the University he held senior executive management and audit positions in the public, private and NGO sectors.

Mr. Masuso is a member of and collaborates with the Institutes of Internal Auditors (Malawi and USA), Society of Accountant in Malawi and Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (UK). His collaboration also extends to the Central Internal Audit Unit and the National Audit Office the key public integrity institutions. These linkages help to ensure that he is abreast with new technical developments in the field of internal auditing.

His vision is to have an academic institution comprised of sustainable and prosperous university of Malawi, constituent colleges, faculties, departments and centres that provides world class education, research and consultancy services for sustainable development of Malawi and the world. He believes that management and Council can only be afforded a reasonable assurance that this vision, which is aligned to the University’s, will be achieved if the University designs and implements efficient and effective governance and operational systems that are evaluated by proficient members of the internal audit function. His mission is therefore to help the University accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes. He therefore allocates significant resources to staff training and development in order to raise the proficiency of the function to levels commensurate with emerging governance and operational challenges.
