Auditing I
Instructor: Ian L. Adamson
COURSE OBJECTIVES:
This is the first course in examining auditing and the auditing profession. The objective is to
introduce students to the theory of auditing and to its application in the business world from the
point of view of the external auditor. The course begins with an examination of the principles and
theory that underlie the practice of auditing, and will then review the ethical and legal
responsibilities of auditors. The preliminary audit plan is then discussed along with the assessment
of the business, control, and fraud risks encountered in an audit. The central concept of gathering
audit evidence, control testing and audit sampling are then discussed. The final section of the course
covers the Revenue cycle.
