This thesis consists of several case studies relating to different topics within the world of accounting. These cases were completed as assignments within the thesis practicum class taught by Dr. Victoria Dickinson. Each case pertains to a different accounting-related topic, and topics include the fundamentals of accounting as well as recent events in the business world. The thesis also includes a five-week long case competition in which students were put into groups to present Audit, Tax, and Advisory strategies for companies headquartered in the United States. Each of these cases were completed during the course of the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. Because each case is independent from the others, cases in which outside sources were cited contain their own bibliographies. In addition to assigned cases, summaries of presentations given by accounting professionals invited to speak to the class are included as well.
