This document is a compilation of a year of work under the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson as a part of the Accounting Practicum Program in accordance with the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College. The eleven case studies that are completed and shown in this thesis are representative of numerous accounting principles and topics that are applicable in the real-world setting. The topics discussed cover a wide range of information such as Regulation Fair Disclosure and the presidential debates, all of which allow students to see how various accounting topics will present themselves in the professional world. Some cases were completed in a group setting, which also allowed students to practice communication skills and further develop their ability to work on a team, which is paramount in public accounting. Additional data and resources were available for some cases, while others required more research and in-depth analysis.
