2021 Auditing Section Midyear Meeting

2021 Auditing Section Doctoral Consortium 

Auditing Scholarship

Thank you to KPMG Foundation for generously supporting the Auditing Section Midyear Meeting and Doctoral Consortium!

The Auditing Section of the American Accounting Association, through the generous support of KPMG, is sponsoring the Annual Auditing Section Doctoral Consortium. The purpose of the Consortium is to stimulate students' research by sharing with them the wisdom of leading researchers in auditing and providing them with an opportunity to network with other aspiring and established auditing scholars.

The Consortium will be held on Thursday afternoon, January 14, 2021. The Consortium is currently planned virtually in conjunction with the Auditing Section's Midyear Conference (to be held January 15-16, 2021).
