Advanced Audit


Students will use audit concepts and auditing standards covered in undergraduate auditing class to further enhance their understanding of the audit environment and audit issues that professionals face. The class will center on case studies and scenarios in applying concepts and critical thinking skills in an audit context. Students will be expected to evaluate the case materials, identify important issues, and communicate those in a clear, coherent manner. Some cases will require students to work in "audit teams" and then present their audit findings to the class and professor. The class will also discuss current audit research being conducted, with a focus on research that can impact professional practice and/or professional standards.
