In today’s dynamic business landscape, measuring and reporting data shapes decisions, particularly in finance, evolving from historical trends to predictive analytics.

The Track Perspective

In today’s fast-paced and ever-evolving business world, senior executives understand that what is measured and reported in organizations is one of the key drivers influencing how decisions are taken and how behaviours are shaped. This is especially true in the critical area of finance.

Financial officers whether in traditional organizations or financial institutions have traditionally relied on historical trends to forecast future performance. As the role of financial officers is rapidly moving from just information providers to partners in business problem solving, they are highly motivated to leverage technologies like advanced data analytics, machine learning and automation. It provides them the ability to support decision making with both predictive and prescriptive analytics that then lead to more informed decision making thus enabling better financial performance for the organization.

The Financial Analytics & Technologies Career Track prepares students looking for a successful career as financial analysts with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with real-world data & using cutting-edge technologies to analyse and interpret financial information. The program will be delivered by a team of experienced faculty members with deep expertise and extensive industry experience in the world of risk, analytics and big data.

Less mature organizations still rely on traditional planning, budgeting, forecasting & reporting tools. Mature reporting processes have moved beyond simple ‘board books’ towards a more comprehensive ‘playbook’.
