Audit Accounting involves the steps to determine the validity and reliability of information and to assess the controls of the system. Auditors express recommendations and opinions of people, organizations, and other units of management. While checking every entry for errors is impractical on larger scale settings, auditors rely on statistical sampling to provide them with a data set test bed. Auditors examine both qualitative and quantitative (numerical) factors. Auditing for many years simply involved the fact checking of financial systems and the financial records of a company or a business. Today, auditors have begun to explore safety, security, information systems performance, and environmental concerns.
Associate’s programs in Audit Accounting train students on the basic premises of auditing in preparation for careers as junior accountants, junior auditors, cost clerks and tax examiner trainees. Curriculums cover a core competency in general accountancy practices, procedures, concepts, and theory. The bachelor’s degree teaches introductory accounting principles and the organization and analysis of income statements, to name a few. Courses explore assets, liabilities, and debt, as well as short-term and long-term expenses. Master’s programs focus on more advanced topics, such as Sarbanes-Oxley and other federal regulations and their requirements.
