Career progression for IT auditors varies based on the needs of the organization that hired you. However, to improve your chances for achieving your managerial aspirations as well as financial goals, I suggest you acquire an advance degree (e.g. M.B.A., M.Sc., M.Comm., L.L.B. or J.D.) and obtain professional experience in as many different audit areas as possible (e.g. IT Governance, Systems and Infrastructure Lifecycle Management, IT Service Delivery and Support, Protection of Information Assets, and Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery).
