Business problems need solutions based on data, not intuition. Yet most organizations struggle to translate the abundance of data they have today into meaningful business insights.

Now more than ever, data analytics, approached with a business management mindset, is an essential function for successful decision making in every industry. It can help frame problems, create comparisons, forecast outcomes, and make predictions. And the people who can make meaning from data in a way that stakeholders and executives can easily understand often become some of the most valued people in a company.

In this certificate program, you will learn effective methods to analyze data and make better, more informed business decisions. Working with Excel as your go-to tool, you will master real-world spreadsheet modeling concepts, examine data cleaning methods to improve accuracy, and explore ways to manage data using Excel’s math and logic capabilities to their full potential.
