Emily Griffith Recognized by the American Accounting Association

by Kristen Fuhremann Sunday, January 29, 2017

Congratulations to Emily Griffith, Assistant Professor in Accounting & Information Systems for her recent award from the Auditing Section of the American Accounting Association (AAA).  Emily received the Outstanding Auditing Dissertation Award at the Auditing Section’s annual midyear meeting in January for her paper, “The Role of Valuation Specialists in Auditing Complex Estimates.”  This award is given to the author who makes the most outstanding contribution to auditing knowledge based upon timeliness and importance of the problem addressed, creativity of the research, development of an appropriate theoretical framework, appropriateness of the research method and analysis, potential for publication in a scholarly journal and potential for the results to have an impact on the practice of auditing.  Emily Griffith

Emily was unable to make the AAA meeting in January, but fortunately colleague Karla Johnstone, President of the Auditing Section of the AAA, was able to present the award at the Department of Accounting’s most recent faculty meeting.

Congratulations Emily!
