Mindset, Behaviors, Knowledge & Skills: Building a Roadmap for the Auditor of the Future

The CAQ, in collaboration with the leading public company accounting firms and the American Institute of CPAs, developed this roadmap to help students understand what they will need to become successful auditors. Designed for both students and educators, this roadmap is a hands-on guide that outlines the mindsets, behaviors, knowledge, and skill sets that public accounting firms seek in their future auditors. The roadmap also provides a list of key knowledge areas on which aspiring auditors should focus while in school. It includes space where students can write down the key related courses that they might have identified on their own or working with accounting professors or academic and career advisors.
