Eller College Professor Featured in Recent Corporate Governance Podcast
April 21, 2021
Preeti Choudhary, associate professor of accounting at the Eller College of Management, was recently featured in an April 15 The Voice of Corporate Governance podcast, in which she spoke about recent co-authored research on the role of mid-level managers within audit firms and audit quality.
Choudhary explains what motivated her and her co-authors to conduct this research and continues to tell listeners the analysis that took place during the writing of the paper as well as the findings.
“We believe that our empirical large sample evidence is useful to evaluate some of the theoretical audit quality indicators that regulatory bodies think may be associated with high quality audits,” says Chaudhary. “Such information could also inform future regulatory decisions, but also audit committees who are interested in high quality audits but may not know which factors are important to consider when it comes to evaluating staffing decisions made by the auditor.
Choudhary joined the Eller College of Management as associate professor in 2017. Previously, she was assistant professor at Georgetown University. She earned her PhD in Accounting from Duke University in 2008. Prior to academia, she worked as an internal auditor for The Washington Post and in enterprise risk services with Deloitte. Her research focuses on capital markets and financial accounting, financial reporting for taxes, recognition versus disclosure and financial reporting reliability.
