Mindset, Behaviors, Knowledge & Skills
The skills required for the auditor of the future are always evolving. To help you stay ahead of the curve, the Center for Audit Quality, in collaboration with the leading public company auditing firms and the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants, developed this roadmap to advise students on what they will need to become a successful auditor of the future.
The roadmap outlines the ideal mindsets and behaviors that will be required of the auditor of the future. It also identifies key areas of knowledge that firms consider desirable for their new hires to possess. The knowledge areas can be acquired by completing the relevant courses offered at your institution, which may be offered as requirements for the major in accounting, or through electives.
Check it out and see if the classes you’re already taking are setting you up for a successful career as an auditor.
