This thesis is a compilation of 10 case studies completed under the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson during the ACCY 420 course over two semesters to satisfy the requirements of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College. Each case guides the study of different accounting standards. These include topics such as contingent liabilities, retirement obligations, non-GAAP financial reporting, financial statement analysis, and more. The case topics often coincided with subjects that were being covered in intermediate, audit, and tax accounting. These cases provided an opportunity to learn how to do independent accounting research in FASB codification. Each case exposed me to a more in-depth look at the topic than I had previously had in other classes. Creating the thesis significantly benefited my academic career and prepared me for a professional career.
