New academic research says accounting students are less likely to be psychopaths who will commit fraud but surprising admissions by some suggest a reason to be wary.
I had the pleasure of visiting James Madison University on November 15-16 to meet with faculty in the School of Accounting, some student groups and to speak at the Beta Alpha Psi Initiation Dinner.
I visited North Carolina State University in mid-October at the invitation of Professor Scott Showalter, a retired KPMG partner. Here’s the speech and a few good links for professors and accounting students.
Here’s the speech and slides I used for the AAA Public Interest Conference on April 1-2 and Top X list of possible research topics for accounting and audit academics interested in public policy.
I’ll be at the American Accounting Association Midwest Conference in Columbus, Ohio May 12-14. I’m on a panel to discuss the audit firm model and will take questions at a separate session. Hope to see you there.
