This thesis was prepared to investigate a variety of accounting scenarios to further learn and challenge student’s notion of accounting. These accounting scenarios were in the form of 11 case studies done over the course of September 2020 to April 2021. These case studies highlighted a wide variety of accounting concepts, and even challenged students to a case competition highlighted in cases 6 through 10. These case studies not only challenged students to think about accounting concepts in a different light, but also to learn more about the field they are going into through personalized cases. These personalized cases allowed students to give their input about accounting concepts, learn more about accounting professionals, and learn more about their role in accounting. The case studies done in this thesis challenges accounting students to learn concepts not standardly taught in the classroom, and sets up success in the accounting professional field.
