Accounting involves analysing and utilizing financial information in order to appraise and evaluate a business’ financial position. This can include anything from book-keeping to managing balance sheets and income statements.

The purpose of the AACA accounting online course is to equip students with the skills to utilise financial information for key decision making, to empower them to comply with legislative and other requirements for any businesses in the global landscape. Accounting careers have a large focus on past records and present reports, involving the creation and analysis of these records. More recently they also extend to encompass planning, controlling, decision-making, stewardship and accountability. This is what forms the foundation of our course.

Aspiring finance, accounting and investment professionals need to understand what financial statements are and how these are prepared how to utilize them when leveraging accounting outputs to drive strategic decision-making.
