The purpose of this thesis is to analyze and discuss a broad range of financial reporting topics. This paper was developed over the course of a year in the Honors Accountancy Independent Study class led by Dr. Victoria Dickinson. It is organized into a series of 12 case studies that each examine a specific accounting issue or topic. This required using all resources available to research and understand the specific topics and companies at hand. This process gave me an advanced knowledge of financial accounting beyond the traditional accounting classroom lectures and textbooks. As a result, writing this thesis acquainted me to what accounting looks like in a real-world context.
