题目: Do Individual Auditors Affect Audit Quality? Evidence from Archival Data 演讲者:Donghui Wu, Associate Professor in accounting, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University 时间: 2011年6月17日(星期五)3:00—4:30PM 地点: 嘉庚二501 参加者: 对会计研究有兴趣的广大师生 主持人: 阮军老师 论文简介: This study examines the importance of individual auditors in determining audit quality using a large set of archival Chinese data. We find that there is a significant variation in audit quality across individual auditors. The effects that individual auditors have on audit quality are both economically and statistically significant, and stronger than the corresponding effects of audit firms. We also find that the individual auditor effects on audit quality can be partially explained by the auditors’characteristics such as educational background, Big N audit firm experience, rank in the audit firm, and political background. Our work highlights the importance of analyzing audit quality at the individual auditor level. 讲座人简介: Dr WU Donghui has B.A. and M.A. degrees in accountancy from Xiamen University, and a Ph.D. in accountancy from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
