ACC 5410 - Accounting Analytics

Credits: 4

In today’s business environment, it seems like the terms “big data” and “analytics” are everywhere.  The accounting and auditing professions are being transformed by the incredible amounts of data that are captured and stored by companies’ accounting, marketing, operating, and other systems.  Accounting professionals must develop important skills to explore, manipulate, and query data and use it effectively in answering business and accounting questions.  This course will introduce students to Tableau, relational databases, SQL, XBRL, and Excel and provide hands-on exposure in the use of each tool to analyze data, find exceptions, and create visualizations that uncover and tell the stories underlying the data.
