This text is an accumulation of case studies assigned by Dr. Victoria Dickson over the course of the Professional Research and Development Research Program offered to accounting undergraduate students at the University of Mississippi. Each case serves to highlight a unique component of the financial and accounting reporting standards and principles under U.S. GAAP. The content of this text also allowed for exploring the applicability of these topics with real world examples, like international accounting, data analytics, and stockholder’s equity. Ultimately, through the process of building this text, students conclude the experience with the knowledge of the expected capabilities of a certified public accountant and are left with a concrete understanding of the career opportunities available for public accountants.
