Certificate Description

You can't manage what you can't measure. This is why management reporting is so crucial to business success. But it's not that simple. To make sound leadership decisions and meet strategic objectives, you must measure the right things. And by properly using and communicating business metrics, you can influence performance.

This certificate consists of six two-week courses. The program provides you with the tools you need to develop key performance indicators (KPIs) and reporting systems to improve the performance of managers and units all across the organization. You'll learn to see your organization and solve business problems using the principles and vocabulary of managerial and cost accounting. Round out your business skills and steer your organization to success with MBA-level content from the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University.

For the best experience in this program it is recommended to take these courses in the order that they appear.
