ACCT 417 - Applied External Audit

Course Description:
The Applied External Audit Course expands on topics introduced in the prerequisite External Audit course. This course assumes that students are familiar with the material related to the first two stages of an audit: acceptance/continuance and audit planning, and will focus on the last two stages of an audit: execution and reporting. Topics in the course include audit risk, materiality, internal controls, sampling methods, execution of substantive procedures in various cycles, consideration of fraud, and understanding various other assurance engagements. An application of knowledge will be done using computer assisted auditing techniques such as IDEA and CaseWare while using the CPA Handbook as a reference.
