This research paper was developed over the course of two semesters under the instruction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson in the honors course ACCY 420. Each week for twelve weeks, we received a case study with various research topics and questions that we were to answer during the course of the week. Each study required us to research a different accounting topic, such as the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), internships, and financial statements, that helped further our knowledge on the subjects involved. During this course, and in the creation of this research paper, my knowledge of accounting topics grew to a level that I would have never reached had I not been challenged each week with researching difficult topics. Each case that I researched allowed me to put my accounting knowledge to use in a very practical way. The cases we studied were very carefully chosen so that we would have more of a comprehensive knowledge of accounting as it is applied today.
