The following thesis examines twelve case studies in financial accounting standards in order to develop a more thorough understanding of public accounting procedures. Each case focuses on a different topic in public accounting, including accounting standards, accounting principles, accounting theory, financial statement preparation, or financial analysis. The case studies included within this thesis demonstrate an understanding of financial standards in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), financial statement preparation, financial analysis, and current issues in accountancy. These case studies were completed under the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson in fulfillment of the requirements of the University of Mississippi, Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College.
