Accounting has always been about analytical thinking. From the earliest days of the profession, Luca Pacioli emphasized the importance of math and order for analyzing business transactions. The skillset that accountants have needed to perform math and to keep order has evolved from pencil and paper, to typewriters and calculators, then to spreadsheets and accounting software. A new skillset that is becoming more important for nearly every aspect of business is that of big data analytics: analyzing large amounts of data to find actionable insights. This course is designed to help accounting students develop an analytical mindset and prepare them to use data analytic programming languages like Python and R.

Principais avaliações do INTRODUCTION TO ACCOUNTING DATA ANALYTICS AND VISUALIZATION
Being the first online module I've ever taken to date, the content and videos far surpassed my expectations. Looking forward to more!
The two lab sessions were useful and the speaker was well present himself and his points making it easy to understand him.
Very insightful session on how to get the best picture out of huge data. I certainly like the homework as it gave me time to practice on certain items. I highly recommend to those who take
useful as an intro course to analytics and data visualization. The nature of the content itself is a bit dry but i think the lecturer did not bad and was clear and concise in delivery.
