Accounting and auditing

Accountants and auditors are often seen as belonging to the same profession, but they have different roles in society. Accountants prepare financial reports, whereas auditors audit the financial reports prepared by accountants.

Accountants can be employed by the organizations for which they prepare the financial reports or by accounting firms, whereas auditors work in audit firms where they often have duals roles as both professionals and managers. Accounting and auditing are therefore closely related occupations, but where the role and the organization in which one works differs.

My thesis focuses on the audit profession from a social identity perspective and includes for example studies on the attractiveness of the profession and the audit firms among students. My teaching mainly focuses on accounting theory, but I also teach in subjects such as business ethics and supervise bachelor theses in accounting/management accounting.
