What Students Are Saying
The topics of business analytics and machine learning seemed impenetrably complex to me at the offset of the program, but the way you translated the material into real life understandable examples made the material much more approachable and made for a very informative and enjoyable learning experience... The information you taught over the course of the program is something I will carry throughout my professional life.

I really enjoyed this course. I learned a lot from it and had a lot of fun. -Jack Tsai (Summer 2020)
Overall, I had a wonderful experience in this class. Before I had been using the coding language python in data science, but this course allowed me to learn R programming, something I hadn't used before. This course has helped me develop the basic skills in data analytics.
