This important father makes the researcher to choose “internal auditing as an instrument of effective management. For this project, the institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu has been used as a case study.  The researcher made use of both primary and secondary data, structured questionnaires were the methods used for the collection of primary data, and secondary data were also collected from textbook and various research materials.  Chi-square was used as a statistical tool for analyzing the data.  From the findings of this researcher it was discovered that internal auditing is an indispensable instrument for effective management. Management’s interference with the functions of the internal audit duties in the institution and also lack of information contribute to the misappropriation of funds and prosperities of the organization. Every nit of the establishments should acknowledge the importance of internal audit to enable it achieve its organizational goals.  The researcher recommends that internal auditors should be persons who are well trained, experienced and of good moral standing for proper recognition.  The internal auditor should not be seen as blood ground but as watch dogs and should be allowed to operate freely according to their schedule. On the other hand, an unhindered flow of information is very necessary and the presence of good internal control system and internal audit have leads to accountability, reduction in fraud, and safeguarding of assets in the institution, so internal audit is an important unit in any establishment. Internal auditing is an instrument of effective management.
