Author: Lorie Marsh

Andy Imdieke’s Accounting, Organizations and Society (2020) paper, coauthored with Dain C. Donelson (University of Iowa), Matthew Ege (Texas A&M University), and Eldar Maksymov (Arizona State University), was cited by Joseph Brazel in a Forbes (November 16, 2020) article, "Has the revival of consulting practices at the Big 4 impacted their audit quality?" Andy says, “Our evidence suggests that absolutist views that Big 4 revenue growth fueled by consulting services is either good or bad for audit quality appear to be overly simplistic. There are merits to both sides of the debate.”
