The List Of Interesting And Easy Accounting Thesis Topics
Students of all majors can find it difficult to choose a thesis topic; finding a topic that is interesting, enjoyable to research, and easy to write about can be difficult. However, it’s particularly difficult for accounting students to choose a thesis topic, as accounting can be a rather dry subject, and doesn’t lend itself well to written papers. To help these students, we’ve compiled a list of general topics which can be used to help generate a fun and easy thesis:
- Stock markets
- Management accounting
- Financial accounting
- National economies
- Regional economies
- Global economy
- Global banking
- Financial law
- International finance
- International trade
Of course, choosing a general topic for one’s accounting thesis paper is only the beginning. A thesis paper starts with a thesis statement, which should be a clear, concise, arguable position. To come up with a thesis statement, one must consider what a thesis statement essentially is: a hypothetical answer to a question the student has. To come up with a great thesis statement, one must do the following:
- The student should choose one of the thesis topics from the list above that he or she finds appealing.
- The student should then do some background reading on that topic—textbook chapters, well-known articles, and current events.
- While reading, the student should jot down questions they come up with on the topic, or take note of interesting facts that they would like to read more about.
- Research more deeply into the questions and facts noted during background reading.
- Next, they should come up with a list of more specific questions about one of the topics they’ve learned about.
- See which of these questions haven’t been addressed in the literature, or adjust the questions until the student has a new question. The thesis statement should be unique.
- Once a favorite question has been chosen, the student should determine whether or not it can be answered with research. If so, proceed.
- The student should come up with a hypothetical answer to the question. This answer should not be obvious; if it is, it means the question is not unique enough. It should also be an answer which can be supported or refuted through research.
- Polish this “answer” by writing it in statement form, in a specific, clear, and concise manner.
- Have the thesis topic approved by the instructor.
