Analytics with Excel

Do more with your organization's data, using a program you already have (and know how to use)  

You don't need to have advanced programming skills to learn how to use data for business decision-making. If you are an intermediate Excel user, our short online course will show you how this workhorse of a program can be used for sophisticated analytics.

Through hands-on examples, students will learn about building dashboards, interactive decision support, data visualization theory and applications, advanced charting, and predictive analytics. 

This class will be held synchronously online (see the technical requirements at right).
