The unit will provide an overview of the nature and decision-making frameworks in auditing, the economics of assurance services, and the organisational and behavioural aspects of auditing. A critical evaluation of issues related to audit quality, auditor independence, audit pricing, internal control, and corporate governance and the present and future role of auditing will be undertaken based on a range of seminal and recent empirical studies.
