Determinants of Audit Quality

  • Nidhal Al Shanti University of Bergamo


This research investigates the impact of auditor experience, auditor education, client’s internal controls, and audit procedures performed on audit quality in the UAE. An online Likert scale-based questionnaire was distributed to auditors with financial audit experience in the UAE. Multiple regression analysis was adopted to analyze data since more than one independent variable was investigated. The results demonstrate that auditor experience and auditor education are significantly and positively associated with audit quality, while client’s internal controls and audit procedures are not associated with audit quality.
