Acerca del Curso

In this course you will learn how to create models for decision making. We will start with cluster analysis, a technique for data reduction that is very useful in market segmentation. You will then learn the basics of Monte Carlo simulation that will help you model the uncertainty that is prevalent in many business decisions. A key element of decision making is to identify the best course of action. Since businesses problems often have too many alternative solutions, you will learn how optimization can help you identify the best option. What is really exciting about this course is that you won’t need to know a computer language or advanced statistics to learn about these predictive and prescriptive analytic models. The Analytic Solver Platform and basic knowledge of Excel is all you’ll need. Learners participating in assignments will be able to get free access to the Analytic Solver Platform....

Too much dependence on XL minor is a negative for the course. Text book code and course code will give XL miner access for 15 days which is a pain

The Analytic Solver Platform did not work properly, despite the environment was given. I can not give more for this course.

The course was heavily designed based on the tool. I would rather learn more details of, for example, optimisation.

Stimulating course, the low valuation is due to the fact that slides shown during lesson are not made available

Not very useful, or complicated (finished it in less than half a day).

Also still using lots of Excel specific tools that one may or may not have access to, instead of offering to use proper tools like Python.

If I had known beforehand that this specialization required a paid license for the Analytic Solver software I would never have signed up. Even after paying for the student license it is of limited help as there are limits on its capability, e.g., in the course the instructor is showing simulations that require 10,000 trials but the paid student license has a limit of just 1,000 trials. So it involves some guesswork to pass the quizzes and assignments! This course and the one before it in this specialization are nothing but promotion of this software.

This specialization and its courses are terribly outdated (from 2015/16) - the videos don't match the software anymore so its hard to figure out how to get things to work.

Concepts are not covered but just Micky Mouse ways of solving problems are shown. I really wish Coursera would remove these courses/specializations instead of continuing to float obsolete ones. There is more current material available on YouTube!
