Date of Award
During Fall of 2017 and Spring of 2018, I participated in an alternate thesis route for accounting majors. The alternate route consisted of enrolling in a year-long course with Dr. Victoria Dickinson and individually completing cases based on financial accounting concepts each week. The cases selected each focus on a specific financial accounting concept. The conclusions reached in the cases were based on materials from the case, in class lecture notes, and an intermediate accounting textbook. Each case presents a series of questions which start with basic accounting concepts and build to more complex conceptual issues. Each case further developed my technical skills and advanced my knowledge about financial accounting concepts. Overall, everything learned from the completion of this thesis will be applicable towards a future career in accounting from a conceptual standpoint and from the further development of writing and technical skills.
