CAQ Symposium 2016: Research in Auditing – Insights from Academics and Practitioners
Tuesday, September 6, 2016
On August 7, 2016, top practitioners from the public company auditing profession gathered with leading academics at the CAQ’s Eighth Annual Symposium in New York. The event is a key part of the CAQ’s ongoing dialogue with the academic community on how research can help inform audit practice. As in past years, the 2016 Symposium included panel discussions on critical issues.
This Symposium panel focused on the advantages that can be gained when academics team up with members of the profession to inform their research. Behavioral and archival researchers working with the CAQ Research Advisory Board have benefited from conferring with auditors to better understand the challenges faced in practice, how those are addressed, and how changes in approach or audit methodology could impact the research question.
