Alain Mikol is an Emeritus Professor in the Financial, Reporting and Audit department at the ESCP Europe Paris Campus. A graduate of ESCP and EPHESS, he began his career with PriceWaterhouseCoopers where he worked for 7 years, resigning with the position of technical manager. He then entered academia, taking his Ph.D. in management and DHDR (post-doctoral degree).
His main research interests and teaching are linked to his professional experience: statutory audit, financial auditing standards, ethical standards of the auditor, but also financial accounting and consolidation (IFRS).
