Testimonial

Tim Mccandlish

This course offered me a window into the world of applied business analytics, which prior to this course, I had very little experience with. I’m very pleased to have taken it as the content and instructors made the topics approachable and allowed me to wrap my head around data in the business world. Specifically, I took away lessons on where to push back on the data, how to question it, and what different kinds of analysis are common practice. It touched on many subjects but didn’t get so far into the weeds that I couldn’t keep up. That said, the content is there if you do want to dig deep as many of my cohort were well versed in data compared to myself. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to expand their knowledge on the subject, regardless of prior experience.
