This document represents the work done over the course of a year under the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson in Professional Research and Development Thesis Program at the University of Mississippi. The purpose of this program is to allow students who plan to work in a professional field to complete a thesis which is more applicable to their future endeavors than a traditional thesis. The twelve case studies that are completed and represented within this thesis were chosen to cover a variety of accounting topics that are similar to what students entering this field will see on a day-to-day basis. By completing these cases, students are able to see how the principles and theories that are taught in lecture have suitable applications to real world situations. Additionally, the completion of a number of these case studies required a group effort, a condition that allowed students to work on their communication skills and gain additional practice in delegation – skills that are essential to be successful in the professional accounting sphere.
