The following thesis consists of a composition of case studies that I wrote under the guidance of Dr. Victoria Dickinson. Over two semesters, Dr. Dickinson advised my peers and me to work through a dozen case studies covering a variety of financial accounting concepts. For most of the cases, we were presented with information and pertinent data about a company, then a series of questions for us to answer would follow. While many of the questions were objective in nature, some of the questions allowed us to be creative and provide our own recommendations to the problems presented. Aside from the structured case studies, we were also given the opportunity to research different data analytics software programs which we may encounter in public accounting. Throughout the year, I was able to apply the technical knowledge that I was learning in my accounting classes to the real-world problems that the cases presented which gave me an understanding of the concepts beyond the classroom.
