Course Purpose

This course prepares today's bookkeepers and accountants for the need to transform from a knowledge of recording and reporting business transactions to analyzing and interpreting business information.

Course Overview

Accounting process automation, which includes automated data capture, data analytics, and artificial intelligence, is transforming bookkeeping and accounting. Technology has greatly reduced or eliminated the need for humans to perform recording and reporting procedures. Rather than gathering information, today's bookkeepers and accountants are now required to understand, analyze, and interpret information. Instead of performing recording and reporting procedures, bookkeepers and accountants must learn to think like business professionals.

Business professionals think about bottom-line consequences such as: If I do this or that, how will it affect my company's financial position, profit, and cash flow? The course uses a financial statements model to educate bookkeeper and accountants how to develop this thought process. The model arranges the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows horizontally across a single line of text to understand the financial position, profit, and cash flow consequences of certain decisions.

Course Length

The course is a fourteen-week course (one session per week). However, the course is an on-demand, self-study, self-paced course. Therefore, the length of the course is determined by the time you dedicate to the course and your understanding of bookkeeping and accounting.
