The purpose of this thesis is to study and reflect on a variety of different aspects of the accounting profession and the professional world at large. Over the course of two semesters, we engaged independently and collectively with our peers in some of the deepest dives into our future profession of our academic careers. Each of the initial cases broadened my horizons and brought to light much of accounting that I had yet to be exposed to. Ultimately in the second semester we were divided into groups to work on series of cases revolving around one major business entity. In our case, The Walt Disney Company. Over the course of months, we compiled evidence and expanded our knowledge to present to our peers, faculty, and many active professionals our findings and theoretical suggestions for The Walt Disney Company. In each case I focused on a different aspect of the profession and brought my opinions, knowledge, and background to the discussion and response culminating into this thesis.
