Insights from Participants

I enrolled in this course to enhance my knowledge and skills in using business analytics to drive data-driven decision-making. I found the course to be practical and straightforward in delivering key outcomes through hands-on practice. I have benefited from the practical hands-on sessions, and Samantha was also very patient in guiding all students. This course has helped me to frame ideas and guide decision-making through a data-centric approach. I have gained a deeper understanding of the value of business analytics and how it can be leveraged to drive business growth and achieve organisational goals. Additionally, I have acquired new skills that have been useful for my personal development. I decided to attend courses at NUS ACE as NUS had given me free vouchers. Nonetheless, I feel that the course is practical, relevant, and applicable to a wide range of work. The skills learned in this course could help to differentiate you from others at work.
