The following thesis provides twelve solutions to case studies on various financial accounting standards. These standards are in agreement with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) as set forth by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). In conjunction with the topics learned in Intermediate Financial Accounting I and II, each case focuses on a separate area of financial reporting. Each area is then applied and analyzed within a specific company. The thesis displays understanding of major accounting principles, financial statement preparation and analysis, and current topics in accounting. The case studies were completed with the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson under the requirements for the University of Mississippi, Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, and Patterson School of Accountancy ACCY 420 course in the 2018-2019 academic year.
