Overview

Auditors need to develop and improve their ability to analyse changes, to address the related risks and challenges and to continuously adapt their audit methods and approaches. 

To do so, it is essential for audit institutions to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with academic researchers. In other terms, audit profession and research must advance hand ­in ­hand. 

To reach this goal the University of Pisa and the European Court of Auditors (ECA), the EU’s independent external auditor, have set up and jointly organised the Summer School in Public Auditing and Accountability at University of Pisa.

The program will be entirely held online, via Microsoft Teams.

Aim of the course

In line with the ECA’s strategy, the School will open a structured dialogue with the academic world, provide additional opportunities for high­ quality training, facilitate knowledge exchange between practitioners and researchers and – last but not least – can provide a platform for study, discussion and information exchange on audit­related issues.

Programme Structure

The courses are aimed specifically at the following target groups:

  • auditors of all kinds (junior or senior, from the private or public sector, financial or performance auditors);
  • students (postgraduate, doctoral and post-doc) from a range of disciplines, including law, political science, economics, sociology, public administration, EU studies, public finances, accounting and audit;
  • researchers and lecturers in the same disciplines;
  • civil servants from EU institutions and bodies, from international organizations, and from national and subnational institutions and administrations.

Audience

The School is open to a wide range of participants: auditors, civil servants, students and scholars, researchers and professionals interested in auditing practice and financial accountability.
