The purpose of this paper is to analyze key financial accounting fundamentals through the completion of case studies administered during the 2020-2021 academic school year. These case studies have included in-depth analysis designed to provide insight into accounting topics that transcends what was learned through prior academic instruction. Over the last year, these cases have provided more practical applications of topics including taxation, financial reporting, investment decisions, and thorough analysis of a company through a mock case study presented in front of industry professionals. Ultimately, these case studies have afforded me the opportunity to develop my knowledge of financial accounting that deeply surpasses what was learned through exams and lectures.
