Michael Knapp has taught undergraduate and graduate auditing courses for more than thirty years. He has developed numerous online CPE courses that focus on a wide range of auditing topics, including the COSO internal control framework, the most common types of accounting frauds, and the impact cognitive biases have on the quality of professional audit services. Professor Knapp has also testified in several major litigation cases involving accounting and auditing issues. For three years, he served as a consultant with the FBI on a major white collar criminal case. Recently, he accepted an invitation from the FBI to speak at a national conference attended by more than 500 FBI agents and other federal law enforcement officers. His honors at the University of Oklahoma include, among many others, the Harold E. Hackler Outstanding MBA Professor (determined by a vote of OU's MBA students), the Outstanding Oklahoma Accounting Educator (awarded by the Oklahoma Society of CPAs), the Delta Sigma Pi Professor of the Year (awarded by the OU undergraduate business students' honor society), the David Ross Boyd Professorship (a university-wide designation for teaching excellence awarded to one professor annually), and the McLaughlin Chair in Business Ethics.
"The cases bring realism to auditing at the undergraduate level.
The cases are easy to read, they keep my attention, they engender
class discussion quite easily, and they use some cases that are
recent and therefore familiar to the students."Jason Bergner,
University of Kentucky
"I consider Knapp Contemporary Auditing Real Issues & Cases to be the premier auditing casebook on the market."Thomas Noland, University of South Alabama
