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.
