Overview

Accounting information is the lifeblood of the organization, as it facilitates and influences operational and strategic decisions intended to achieve organizational goals. Organizations benefit from three decision-oriented roles of accounting: measurement, control, and communication. 

This Accounting for Business Decision Making - Strategy Assessment and Control offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign provides an introduction to accounting’s role in helping managers develop and implement, and improve the organization’s strategy. In particular, you will learn how non-financial and financial information is created, organized, and communicated to help managers make strategic decisions, as well as measure strategic success. 

This course also provides an introduction to accounting as a control function inside the organization, which helps influence the alignment of managers’ and employees’ decisions with organizational goals. You will learn about different types of controls, including process controls, budgets, and performance measurement and evaluation tools and techniques. 

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Create and communicate accounting information that facilitates strategic decisions.
  • Use accounting information to develop, implement, and improve organizational strategy.
