Individuals are members of one and more organizations in which they are subject to organizational norms and management systems. Yet, individuals are not passive and only reactive to the norms and prescribed expectations, they are active in pursuing their own personal goals and may behave differently. As a collective unit of individual employees, an organization like a firm may also perform differently in different regulatory, technological, and competitive environments.
In the accounting contexts, how a firm designs and implements management accounting systems and what the determinants are as well as what the performance may be are important issues. At the individual level, how employees at large and managers in particular perform and make decisions in organizations with different management accounting and control systems (e.g., costing systems, performance evaluation systems, incentive systems) are equally important issues.
In the auditing contexts, how auditors process information and make judgments and decisions that may vary with the way that the information is presented or framed, attributes of individual auditors, audit firm, and audit client as well as regulatory and technological conditions has been a research focus. The judgmental performance and audit quality are the focal variables. How the judgmental biases would be mitigated is an ongoing issue.
The objectives of this course are to expose the students to the knowledge about psychological and organizational aspects of accounting and auditing.
Students after taking this course are expected to (1) be able to read the assigned and related papers, (2) be familiar with research design using either survey or experiments, and (3) be inspired to find a research question that can be empirically answered using the methods covered in this course.
