Emphasis will also be placed on regulation and institutional issues affecting auditor behavior and audit markets. Furthermore, time will be devoted to discuss challenging research opportunities in auditing, the process of conducting audit research, and selecting the appropriate research methodology and design, which should help students to identify an important research topic and develop a sound research proposal.

PROGRAMME

Topics that will be covered:

  • The functioning of audit markets: demand and supply
  • Audit market structure: concentration, industry specialization and competition
  • Audit quality: audit inputs – audit process – audit outcomes – audit context
  • Auditor judgment, expertise, and professional skepticism
