Description: The best ideas don’t always nab the largest budgets. Take analytics, for example. For some in the c-suite, the term sounds pioneering and empowering. To others, it comes across as vague and faddish. In this course, students will not only learn how to use analytics to forecast your best profit centers, but also how to sell it to those who control budgets.

Review: “This was a decent introductory course to Marketing Analytics but some material was convoluted. Ultimately, I felt this course offered limited real world examples or applications. The instructor could have been more engaging and quizzes could have been more challenging.” For additional reviews, click here.
