End of week reflections

Reflection of a woman's eye in a crystal

Well done for getting through the second week! Let’s wrap it up by recapping some of the key aspects we studied so far – just the main takeaways, and in particular some of the issues that we’ll return to later in the course.

This week we explored accounting information systems using Xero, an accounting software, and had the chance to better understand how it works by working on a few exercises.

Next week we will tackle management accounting, you will be introduced to budgets – one of the widely used tools across organisations worldwide.

Over to you

Reflect upon the materials presented as well as your previous discussions with other learners and select one thing you have learned this week to share in the comments.
