FAR Masterclass on 29 March 2019, 1.30-3.30 p.m. at Nyenrode Business Universiteit in Breukelen about “Judgment biases in auditing” by Anna Gold, professor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. 

Departing from psychological theories, we discussed several judgment biases, how they apply to auditor judgments, and what we know from research about these biases. We discussed applications in various steps of the audit process, where professional judgment plays a role. The FAR Masterclass was especially of interest to research fellows in auditing and research interested audit practitioners.
