Hear from our adult learners!
The course covered a number of useful business analytics tools widely used in today’s workplace, such as Tableau and PowerBI for Data Visualization and MySQL and R for data analysis. It is a good course to build one’s foundation in these tools. Additionally, the instructors are patient, knowledgeable and very willing to share their knowledge and help students get up to speed.
Despite not having prior experience in using any of these tools, I was able to follow through with the course contents. Highly recommended for beginner learners looking to get exposure to different business analytics tools!
Lim Yue Hui, Internal Auditor
In this course, I managed to gain data visualization skills, understand coding and pick up some query languages. It provides the basics for my current job as a business analyst.
The teachers are knowledgeable and are able to share valuable insights based on their experiences. I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to learn the foundations of analytics.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to the lecturers and admin staff for the wonderful learning experience I had over the past year. I truly appreciate the valuable knowledge I gained on data analysis and the friendships made with fellow course mates and lecturers. The lesson plan was well-crafted and made it easier for us to comprehend and learn. I am also especially grateful for the patience and assistance shown to me by all the lecturers throughout the course, as I am slow in learning. Once again, thank you for the fruitful learning journey!
