Professor Lendecky Awarded Outstanding Faculty Award

While we know our faculty is top notch, it's always nice to have confirmation of this from the students themselves. It is with pride that we share that the students of the Mexico City Class of 2014 elected to honor Brian Lendecky with the Outstanding Faculty Award. This award is granted by the students to the faculty member who provided the class with the most memorable academic experience during the program.

Congratulations Prof. Lendecky!

The Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) announced funding for four new academic research projects, including “Does Disclosing Critical Audit Matters in the Audit Report Increase Perceived Auditor Responsibility for Misstatements?” by Steven J. Kachelmeier, Jaime J. Schmidt, and Kristen Valentine.

This project was one of four chosen by the CAQ's Research Advisory Board (RAB) from the 36 research proposals submitted in response to a December 2013 request for proposals specifically related to key auditing topics.

Through the RAB, the CAQ has provided 25 grants to fund academic research since 2009.
