The following exploratory project delves into relevant accounting concepts in today’s economic and financial landscape. Using U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, the topics of financial reporting, deferred taxation, mergers and acquisitions, internal controls, financial ratio analysis, revenue recognition, inventory management and cost accounting, leases, and dissolution are investigated through the use of case studies. Over the course of the 12 cases presented here, the purpose is to provide a comprehensive understanding regarding the current landscape of accounting as it pertains to the topics mentioned above. The cases were conducted under the direction of Dr. Victoria Dickinson in the Patterson School of Accountancy in conjunction with the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College. The Honors College thesis requirement has been satisfied through the alternative thesis track provided to accountancy honors students. The 12 cases were completed on a biweekly basis through the fall and spring semesters with accounting professionals spending time with our class on the opposite weeks to provide real-world insight into the topics that we were researching in our case studies.
