The purpose of this honors thesis is to study different areas of accounting and create a deeper understanding of accounting in the real world. The University of Mississippi provides Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College Graduate the opportunity to craft a final thesis based on twelve different case studies. These case studies go on to cover real life topics from specific companies accounts receivable to stockholder’s equity and other areas in between. Along with these case studies, Honors Accountancy students compete in two case competitions where they are challenged with creating a plan to address different accounting issues. The plans are then presented to a team of accounting professionals representing multiple major accounting firms. The thesis program allows individual accounting students the opportunity to get a glimpse into accounting outside of academia and prepares students to engage in professional presentations and research.
