This MOOC identifies and explores a number of challenges to the finance professional arising from the ever changing business environment. Increasingly, financial decisions must take account of strategic consequences. The first module, Exploring Strategic Position, Choice and Action helps in doing that – setting a strategic context for planning for, monitoring and controlling projects and activities. An on-going set of challenges is found in the evolution of International Reporting Standards. The second module focuses on some recent changes in Standards, identifying the drivers for changes, and examining evolution in controversial areas such as leasing and goodwill. The third and final module, Corporate Governance, examines issues which are causing people to re-assess the nature, purpose and scope of corporate governance, and challenges to making governance function effectively. Key issues here are the move to include a broader range of stakeholders, the perennial challenge of agency theory issues, shareholder activism, changing Board structures, and challenges to internal control to better manage risk. This MOOC will be right for you if you are interested in engaging with some of the challenges facing finance professionals, even if you are not one yourself. If you are thinking about returning to study this will provide a taster of academic endeavours through reading articles, critiquing ideas, and blending theory with reality....

Well-organised course indeed!\n\nA quick flashback of my ACCA knowledge.\n\nAlthough it was challenging but managed to complete it with my work.\n\nRecommended to finance professionals. :)

I recommend this course to anyone who passed ACCA more than 5 years ago and wishes to enrol on the MSc in Professional Accountancy. I thoroughly enjoyed this learning experience.

The course is good and informative in terms of learning.

There is a little problem in getting the assignments verified if there are no reviewers left behind.

Overally, this was a good course. Struggled a bit with the peer review as one had to beg other students to review assignments.

While searching for a course the syllabus of this one was quite interesting. Unfortunately the course itself did not meet the expectation, I had to unenroll at a certain point.

Lectures are too generic and short, especially the IFRS ones: no real added value. There is really an excess of peer review assignments: time consuming and with little actual benefit (one can wait a month to receive a review...).

Maybe the course is valid for a junior student, but definitely not for a professional working full time in the accounting/finance field.

The course covered very dated areas and is out of date with current thinking and relies upon others to submit assignments before you can complete. Many areas for improvement such as the watch ability of some of the presenters. Needs annual updating and a poor choice as a preliminary course for the MSc.
