Abstract

This presentation is about the role of an auditor in society. To the general public, the function of an auditor is unknown. I plan to educate those on what an auditor is, why we need them in society, and what happens when an auditor fails to perform its duties. Auditing is a systematic process that is very important to the sustainability of businesses and the economy. The world has seen numerous scenarios where inefficient auditing or fraud has hurt many victims financially. These scandals include Enron, WorldCom, and more. We need sufficient auditors to prevent events like those from happening again in the future. As long as professionals in the business world and auditors of large companies operate with a strong ethical standard, then these problems will be at a minimum. However, ethics are a large part of auditing, and they can be perceived in different ways. Ethics are emphasized a lot here at Sacred Heart University. As a student in the Thomas More Honors Program, I know that I will use the lessons that Sacred Heart has taught me, as I move towards a new future as an auditor.
