The purpose of this paper is to explore financial reporting topics through twelve separate case studies. The following cases were completed over the course of a year in the independent study class Accy 420. The case studies provided the opportunity to explore accounting topics beyond the journal entries typically taught in accounting classes. In-class discussions and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification guided the development of the solutions to the twelve cases. For each case, I learned the applicable FASB guidance and the theory behind the appropriate accounting treatment. The case studies allowed me to explore topics ranging from potential fraud schemes to a new revenue recognition principle. The cases also provided the opportunity to develop Microsoft Excel and research skills. Through the knowledge gained from the completion of these studies, I am better equipped to think critically in my professional career.
