TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO BUSINESS ANALYTICS: COMMUNICATING WITH DATA
Excellent opportunity to learn and very good platform for working employees to sharpen their skills and knowledge.
This course is ok for those who are looking fora good understanding of the concept of data visualization. However, there is no hands-on training on any of the data visualization tools.
I have learnt the different applications to use in communicating with data and comparison of data
I loved the course it was great, although in the last honor track assignment I think it should be revised as it doesn't have anything to do with what was seen throughout the course
