The Accounting and Analytics program of Rochester Institute of Technology combines the accounting technologies you need–Big Data, AI, advanced analytics, financial analytics  –to gain significant insights, predict future outcomes, or even ascertain risk. 


Accounting analytics can help an organization answer financial questions by looking at all the data gathered by a company (e.g., transactional data, financial data, investment analysis, etc.) and analyzing this information to gain significant insights, predict future outcomes, or even ascertain risk.

There are four key types of data analytics–descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive–and each has a role in helping an accountant report on activity happening within an organization. All four of these types of data can be used to create a full picture of what's happening within a business, what decisions can and should be made, and where growth opportunities lie.

This innovative Accounting and Analytics program from Rochester Institute of Technology teaches you how technologies and business analytics are used in the accounting profession, with a specific focus on:

  • Hands-on experience working with data-science oriented computing languages such as R and Python
