Mr. Dereck D. Bar's Research
Dereck D. Barr, CPA (TN – Inactive), CIA joined the PhD program in the Patterson School of Accountancy in 2009. Prior to his doctoral studies, Dereck received both Bachelor and Master of Accountancy degrees from the Ole Miss School of Accountancy in 2002 and 2004, respectively. He then spent six years in internal audit positions at the FedEx World Headquarters following a brief stint with Vitro America; both companies are domiciled in Memphis, TN. His most significant auditing experience was spent leading complex entity audits for the international audit groups.
Dereck’s primary teaching and research interests are in the field of auditing. He is most interested in factors that affect auditor (internal and external) judgments and the strategic interactions between auditors and managers. Currently, he is working on projects that individually examine the effect of continuous auditing on internal auditor judgments, how multi-account audit settings affect the auditor’s ability to anticipate and respond to the manager’s possible tendencies toward financial misreporting, and the effect of professional skepticism on auditor decision-making.
