About ALX Free Financial Analyst Certificate Programme
The ‘4th industrial revolution’ has led to an explosion of real-time sensors, mobile payments, e-commerce, cloud computing, robotics & the internet of things. Automation means that traditional accounting tasks like creating income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements can now be performed by computers. The days of accountants are therefore numbered. What the world needs more than ever are financial analysts and business intelligence analysts who can analyze this data to recommend important decisions for companies.
