All the Functions and Formulas you need to perform detailed Data Analysis

Excel for Business Analysts

Microsoft Excel remains one of the best tools for Data Analysis. In this course, we focus on the specific functions, formulas, and tools that Excel has to help conduct business or data analysis.

We start by looking at how to take raw data and clean it so it’s in a useable format. After that, we look at a number of tools and functions that can be used to conduct analysis before moving onto how to display data in the most meaningful way. Finally, we move onto some more advanced techniques designed to aid forecasting and using existing data to predict future trends.

This course also includes practice exercises so you can immediately put into practice the new data analysis techniques that you learn.

In this course you will learn:

  • How to merge data from different sources using VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, INDEX MATCH, and XLOOKUP
