I love being able to share my knowledge and passion for data and about critical thinking and problem solving with everyone. This class is not a math class. It’s a data class, and we can do so much more by giving students the right tools.

Hey! I'm Danielle.

Every week, I’ll assist any way I can during our virtual LiveLabs to make sure you’re properly retaining the info from the Video Lectures.

I really enjoyed the format of the course where students had videos to watch then projects and assignments that reinforced those skills from the videos.

I did not know anything about Tableau before this course. I feel pretty confident using it enough to play with it more and continue to learn on my own.

ALUM | Accounting

Great course! One of my favorite courses I've taken in college so far.

SOPHOMORE | Finance

I love this course because it is challenging; it forces you out of your comfort zone. I also love the fact that everyone was so supportive.

SENIOR | Supply Chain

I really liked how we used real data sets. It showed me that data analysis can be used in so many professional fields.

JUNIOR | Accounting

I learned information that will help me in the workforce one day – something I've never learned in a regular college course.
