Alexander Pierce Watkins: An Analysis of Case Studies Related to the Field of Financial Reporting in Accounting
(Under the Direction of Dr. Victoria Dickenson)
The following thesis provides answers and descriptions to questions posed in various case studies that have to do with financial accounting,. The cases generally cover topics such as Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, how specific fictional or real companies have navigated their complexities, the student’s takeaway from the material, and a technical real-life application. Taking Intermediate Financial Accounting in conjunction with the completion of these cases allowed us to gain a deeper understanding of the subject material we were learning in and out of the classroom. This thesis helps display that deeper understanding through the preparation of financial statements and the ensuing analysis of them, the study of current topics in accounting, and the ability to think critically about unclear standards and practices. The series of case studies were completed with the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickenson per the requirements of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College and the Patterson School of Accountancy.
