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.

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.

by Nan is taking this course right now, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
stay tuned . . . so far (one week in) it's been just OK. I don't yet have a clear understanding of what the topic really means and how it differs from traditional financial analysis. It's probably not a course to take if you don't have some familiarity with accounting. The lectures are pretty dry and run through concepts without much problem solving or practical application until the quiz.
