Course Description

Most decisions are made based on the desire to find the best way to do something. Solving complex business problems related to organizational goals can be a challenge. The ability to do this can be maximized with a little preparation and the power of Excel. When you use data in your analysis to prescribe what should happen next, you're performing prescriptive analytics.
