Data is the new raw material of business. The IDC predicts the world's collective sum of data will reach 175 zettabytes (of 175,000,000,000 gigabytes) by 2025. All this new data requires new skills and tools to manage, analyze and interpret. Not surprisingly, a PwC research report puts coding, predictive analysis and machine learning high on the list of skills accountants will need to succeed, given CPAs are typically charged with extracting crucial insights from data.

Coding is no longer just for software developers. Learning how to code and understanding the language of machines will become a foundational aspect of a CPA's skillset.

You will learn about:

  • how coding can benefit finance and accounting roles
  • the common programming languages that employers are looking for in finance professionals today
  • why coding is important for data analytics and automation
