Accounting Analytics explores how financial statement data and non-financial metrics can be linked to financial performance. In this course, taught by Wharton’s acclaimed accounting professors, you’ll learn how data is used to assess what drives financial performance and to forecast future financial scenarios. 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 including consumer behavior predictions, corporate strategy, risk management, optimization, and more. By the end of this course, you’ll understand how financial data and non-financial data interact to forecast events, optimize operations, and determine strategy. This course has been designed to help you make better business decisions about the emerging roles of accounting analytics, so that you can apply what you’ve learned to make your own business decisions and create strategy using financial data.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ACCOUNTING ANALYTICS
Systematically presented materials. The explanations and Excel calculations were easy to follow even though they were via video. Well done for creating such a fantastic student experience!
Parts were good but I felt the emphasis on finding accounting fraud was too niche, I was looking for ways to improve my business. The final week actually saved the course for me.
Some points was really new for me and I had to watch youtube for understanding those, I think the reason is I only took this part from the course. Still I think it should be a bit more explanatory.
well i give 4 stars because in week 4 there is some trouble with translate appear fast than voice it hard to interpret and understanding because of lack listening in english, thank youu
