Course Description

This course explores how financial statement data and non-financial metrics can be linked to financial performance through data analytics. Topics include analytic techniques for decision-making and the examination of “big data” involving accounting information. Hands-on experiences will develop skills with select software tools used in data analytics for accounting professionals. While many accounting and financial organizations deliver data, accounting analytics deploys that data to deliver insight, and this course will explore the many areas in which accounting data provides insight into other business areas. This course will help students make better business decisions through the use of financial data and accounting analytics.
