Audit Analytics has made precise searching of the audit and compliance aspects of SEC filings a reality.  Accounting, finance and management faculty from top rated and international business schools have used Audit Analytics as source data to publish on a wide variety of topics.  A sampling includes evaluations of SOX, auditor fee trends, auditor industry expertise, gender diversity in audit committees, the interplay between restatements and disclosures or consequences and the impact of internal control weaknesses    Now VSB faculty and students have access to this specialized research tool as well!

Audit Analytics data is available for students and faculty on the Accounting and Management Company and Industry pages.  The search interface is characterized by expandable catagories with drop down menus. All searches can be limited by industry, geographic location, market capitalization, revenue and date.   Reports may be downloaded into Excel files.  The Data Dictionary for each search category provides  field definitions and sources the SEC filing types.  WRDS platform access is also available for faculty and graduate students.
