This thesis is the collection of eleven case studies completed over the course of a year in the Patterson School of Accountancy under the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson. This collection of case studies covers various topics, but most topics relate to Financial Accounting in today’s world. Some of the topics of research include Britain’s exit from The European Union, an analysis of a public company’s Annual Report, and recent political discussions concerning the Electoral College. While most cases performed were research related, others were project-based such as obtaining a Certification from the Corporate Finance Institute in Excel and conducting interviews with older students in the Patterson School as well as current professionals. These case studies were performed using technical understanding gained from coursework as well as professional judgement. All of these completed cases contribute to a greater understanding of both the technical aspects of financial accounting as well as the practical aspects in today’s accounting and business environment.
