AFP Digital Badge: Applied Financial Data


The application of financial analytics is the process by which data is converted into key insights that can inform decision makers, improve performance, and guide business strategy. Financial analytics allow individuals to derive value by answering four key questions: (1) What happened? (2) Why did it happen? (3) What’s happening now? and (4) What might happen in the future? As a natural follow-up to the Financial Analysis: Critical Thinking and Decision-Making course, this seminar provides hands-on training using Microsoft Excel to evaluate financial data for value-added decision-making. Participants will gain insight in when and where to use key financial analytics. Participants will also be introduced to elements of data mining by using pivot tables in Excel.
