Description: Think big data is just for marketing and operations? Think again. In reality, analytics offers accounting and finance with new ways of identifying patterns and key nuggets of information that aren’t readily apparent on the balance sheet. It also provides an alternative model for forecasting and integrating financial data with other metrics. In this course, students will apply big data frameworks to accounting to inform “consumer behavior predictions, [operations optimization], corporate strategy, [and] risk management.”

Review: “A very useful course for people who are interested in doing more with accounting data. I have completed the course and I found it very useful to my area of work. Course Materials are quite technical though but I am sure people with an Accounting or Finance background will not struggle to appreciate the content.” For additional reviews, click here.
