June 06, 2011

The Center for Audit Quality has announced it will fund a research project by Ikseon Suh, assistant professor of accounting. Suh’s project, titled “Why and How do Mid-Level Accounting/Finance Managers Perpetrate Financial Reporting Fraud?” was chosen by the CAQ’s Research Advisory Board, comprising members from academia and the auditing profession.

Suh is collaborating with Kristina Linke, University of Groningen, and Joseph Wall, Carthage College, on the project. The CAQ funded four other projects from among 48 proposals that addressed such topics as audit quality, financial statement fraud deterrence and detection, professional judgment and professional skepticism.

The CAQ is an autonomous public policy organization dedicated to enhancing investor confidence and public trust in the global capital markets. Based in Washington, D.C., the CAQ is affiliated with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
