Data Analytic Tools for Financial Management

Data Analytic Tools for Financial Management


This seminar is a condensed, quick paced overview on the principles, tools, techniques, and applications of data analytics within a contemporary financial management environment. Large amounts of electronic data present an enormous challenge and opportunity to identify trends, correlations, compliance, cost/expense activity, risks, possible fraud, errors, and otherwise hidden actions, and effects in financial and operational performance. This seminar will demonstrate the application of software and a case study to demonstrate the power of available tools to extract, sort and identify specific information from databases and the cloud. This seminar will also explore approaches to using data to identify risks and outliers, monitor activity, display, and chart results for reporting.

For the virtual version, students must have Excel-with the Data Analysis ToolPak activated (this is included with Excel software).

This course is part of the Master Certificate in Federal Financial Management.
