Course description: This course examines the interplay between accounting functions, control and automated information systems as commonly found in business. You will learn how to use, evaluate, and audit automated systems, and understand state-of-the-art information systems as they relate to the organization and presentation of accounting data. In addition to concepts of information data quality, storage, retrieval and visualization, the course also introduces advanced technologies such as robotic process automation (RPA), blockchain, and cognitive computing.
