The following thesis consists of eleven accounting case studies that were presented as the curriculum followed in the Accounting 420 class. Each case covers a different topic that in some way demonstrates the purpose and place of accounting theory in the current industry. This thesis exercised deep analysis of each accounting principle and therefore demonstrates a well-rounded understanding of topics covered. Each case study was completed under the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson in fulfillment of the requirements for The University of Mississippi, Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, and the Patterson School of Accountancy ACCY 420 course in the 2019-2020 academic year.
