Creighton Accounting Professor Named to National Professional Board
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has named Creighton University Accounting Professor Mark H. Taylor, Ph.D., to its Auditing Standards Board. The board develops auditing, attestation, and quality-control standards for nonpublic audit engagements.
Taylor, the John P. Begley Endowed Chair in Accounting, teaches undergraduate and graduate assurance services and corporate governance courses. He recently completed a one-year fellowship in the Professional Practice Group of the Office of the Chief Accountant at the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington D.C. He has held previous appointments at the University of South Carolina’s Moore School of Business, Brigham Young University, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Taylor serves as audit committee chair or audit committee member on three investment company boards, is an academic fellow at the National Corporate Governance Center, and consults regularly with large accounting firms and other organizations. Taylor’s research primarily focuses on audit judgment and decision making and institutional matters such as regulation and independence. He is a co-author of the academic commentary that helped foster the formation of the AICPA’s Reliability Task Force, on which he serves.
