Excellente course. Very challenging especially for beginners. The motivation to achieve my final goal of reinventing myself professionally, makes every challenge a welcome experience. Thanks Coursera!
Operations Analytics helps me to understand how to solve Newsvendor problem by statisti, forecast SUK and predict the seasonal performance. Great lessions and thanks so much for the three Instructors!

Such an interesting and challenging course. I had to work hard to understand the mathematical side of the course, which was a challenge for me, but very rewarding when I achieved such a high grade. I loved the way that you guided us through Excel and we learnt by new skills by actually doing them. Brilliant.

It's a good start for everyone for wants to know how Operations decisions should be made. This course present the logic behind expensive softwares and as my professor says, the difference between an ordinary Operations manager and an extraordinary lives in the details, as to know how the softwares think. ;)
Amazing and detailed explanations by professors made me anxious and excite about business analytics,
the best part is evaluation process and finally by getting the certificate from Wharton school which is my dream college,I feel very proud
Thank you coursera for this beautiful learning experience....!!!

Operations Analytics shows how complex is the process of devising the future. However, statistical models minimize the forecast and maximize the potential of returns. It's what i like in these business subjects: the fact that wealth is not a product of luck or mystery. It is predictable!

One of the best courses I have attended. A must for all Ops manager and decision makers. Complex uncertain situations have been simplified and explained with a number of examples. Thanks to Prof Senthil, Prof Serge and Prof Noah. I would live to take the advanced course.

Very practical key points. I personally would say it's suitable for those who have few or lack business related general knowledge. It's important to understand the very fundamental ideas behind the almost definitely more complicated formulations and cases in practice.

This course was a great refresh of statistical knowledge, the access to excel files helped reinforce and apply knowledge, and the course and instructors did a great job of scaffolding ideas and applying technical procedures to big-picture business ideas and problems.

I loved every minute of this course. It gives you a basic theoretic knowledge that you can easily expand on and makes sure that you are able to start doing your own optimization thanks to the practice-oriented lectures and the extra problems at the end of each week.
By Amar S•
The course content is very much useful and relevant to practical decision making of business world. It helped me a lot in learning Decision Tree Analysis, Mathematical operation, Optimization and Microsoft Excel function like data analysis and solver operation etc.
By Ipek A•
The course was very informative for business analytics and utilized data analysis tools well. The instructors were very clear and the videos very easy to follow. In the end, I was surprised that I could come up with solutions for the problems introduced on my own.
By Adams O A•
The professors gave the students many tools to go and use solve some basic operational problems within a business. I really appreciated the Excel sheets being easy to understand, and I will definitely be referring to them as I grasp more knowledge of the material.
By Helder R C V•
Excellent material, plenty of practice problems with relevant examples. The best i have seen so far. The teachers really take their time to explain every detail, it's impressive.
I recommended it to everyone looking to get more experience/knowledge in the subject.
By Krithivasan K•
The course was engaging and easy. It dealt with some unique and practical concepts which would be helpful for our future career. These concepts were dealt with in a subtle and easy way. The use of excel also helped in learning some new things in every session.
By Rodrigo A•
Incredibly cool exercises. It would be interesting to find examples on how current tech companies like (Uber, Amazon, etc) are facing demand based problems for us e-learners to understand how these solutions can be applied to current business problems. Good job!
By Suhaimi C•
Great course with lots of information and refreshments on moving average, optimization, simulation, and decision tree, excel solver and analytics tool. The professors broke things down to make it easy to understand and easier to apply the concepts. Thanks Much!

This is the first course am completing frm coursera. It's amazing stuff I got and I got to know abt many things from this course. Moreover I would like to thank professors for giving excel templates which made me to work out and understand more on this.
Amazing course. After a long time, I had access to a logical flow of these complex subjects in an easy to absorb manner with increasing complexity. I do realise that I don't have access to Interfaces though - to follow-up on the readings suggested!!
By Adriana A R•
Very interesting course. It was very good to refresh what I learned long time ago. Easy to follow and very clear explanations.
The material is very useful and the excel files to work the examples are very clear and great to keep for future reference.
By Sandip M•
By far one of the best taught courses as the instruction and material are very well designed with keeping in mind of the level of learners for the Business Analyst certification program. This will definitely be in my top courses in near future.
By Mufaddal V•
Being a businessman, this is definitely going to help me make business decisions on a day to day basis for cost cost control and profit maximization. Course had good examples and ample practice examples for better understanding of the concepts.

Of the entire course so far I found the Operations Analytics very detailed and has helped me understand the aspects of operations. The additional excel problems and the detailed videos has made me more inclined towards the operations Analytics.
By JIng Z•
I love this course! 3 instructors gave us 3 different methods to optimize the solutions and in the end, they summarize all together! Materials are so clear and well instructed, highly recommended anyone who interested in operation analytics
By Ian A•
This course gives a very high level view of operations analytics. It introduces solver in excel, how to convert non-linear problems to linear using constraints and decision trees using maxi-min, maxi-min and maximizing the expected value.
By Shiuh H N•
Excellent step by step approach to analytics, from deterministic to probabilistic forecasting. I have already used the actual to forecast ratio in equity markets. The simulation and solver function are invaluable in lots of application.
