This paper serves as a compilation of the case studies assigned by Dr. Victoria Dickinson throughout the Professional Research and Development Thesis Program. Each of the twelve studies contained within this thesis present a different topic or problem concerning accounting standards or the application of financial reporting. In addition, this report demonstrates the application of accounting studies to real-world scenarios, thus integrating various fields, such as risk assessment, investments, finance, and accounting. Additionally, this course and continuous research assignment promoted teamwork and classroom collaboration, as the studies were assigned to task groups. Through the use of repetitive group projects, students enhanced their delegation, communication and networking skills. Following the conclusion of this course, students obtained a more thorough understanding of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, employed critical thinking and analytical problem-solving methods, and ultimately prepared for the role of a public accountant.
