Testimonial


This course is a very intensive course which covered a lot of excel functions which are useful for data analysis and presentation. I can now create awesome excel files to automate data analysis and aid decision making.


There are many reports that can be generated with just Excel alone which can be used for not only reporting but also in advertising and marketing collaterals.


This is one of the best comprehensive class I ever attended which is relevant and added value to our nature of work in finance. The notes are comprehensive and detailed.
