- Audit Research
- Qualitative Research in Accounting (former Case-Based Research in Management Accounting)

The objective of the seminar is to take doctoral students to the frontiers of audit research. The seminar will cover both audit market research and behavioral audit research. 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.
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
- Organization of accounting firms: ownership and operating structures, audit firm governance, liability
- Institutions, incentives and regulation affecting the auditing profession.
Detailed programme will be posted shortly.
The seminar is designed primarily for doctoral students, but post-docs and other early stage researcher may also benefit from attending. We assume students have a basic knowledge of audit research obtained during their (Research ) Master studies or equivalent. Please let us know if you do not have this basic knowledge of audit research, and we will provide you with a reading list to prepare for the seminar.
