The following thesis is a compilation of the solutions and analyses derived from twelve different case studies covering a variety of topics related to financial accounting standards in accordance with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles as set forth by the Financial Accounting Standards Board. These case studies demonstrate how key accounting principles studied in academia are adapted into practice by businesses for financial reporting. Through the case studies, the real-world presentations of financial statements are analyzed in order to establish a knowledge of the current accounting climate and promote understanding of specific accounting topics. The case studies were completed under the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson in fulfillment of the requirements for the University of Mississippi, Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, and Patterson School of Accountancy ACCY 420 course in the 2019-2020 academic year.
