This thesis is a study of financial accounting through a collection of case studies. This thesis took place over the course of two semesters in Accounting 420. Dr. Victoria Dickinson led the class and advised the students in this class for each case study. There are 11 case studies that comprise this thesis including: A Tale of Two Cities, Asset Concepts, Excel Course, Taxodus – Playing the Global Tax Avoidance Game, Business Interview – Melissa Meacham, Case Competition – Overview, Case Competition – Audit, Case Competition – Tax, Case Competition – Advisory, Case Competition – Earnings, Stock Price, and Analysis, and Financial Crisis of 2008. The case competition portion of thesis required students to present our findings in front of many accounting professionals from different firms. The competition was a rewarding experience as we were able to share what we had learned with accounting professionals and answer any questions they had regarding our findings.
