This thesis includes nine case studies on accounting topics and uses. In our Honors Accountancy Thesis class, we researched various topics in the field of accounting. Following this research, we constructed case studies employing different methods and styles. Three of the case studies were completed individually, while the other six were completed in a group of 3-5 members. The case studies honed my skills in research, communication, and teamwork. Furthermore, I developed confidence in my public speaking as well as earning a certification in excel.

The first case studies are focused on unique topics or events. The final five cases consist of a multiple-week analysis on FedEx Corporation. The case studies are arranged chronologically and took place over two semesters. Following the conclusion of our group study, we presented the information, strategies, and advice to a panel of professionals in the field of accounting. Those professionals were then able to ask questions about our presentation and the research that we had gathered.
