It is a business centred course that will help you understand the most important metrics. It includes comprehensive glossaries and lectures that will help you in the process and a lot of case studies.

It's a great course because even it's based on theory not practical(Which cover in next courses in specialization) but still, at final assignment submission, you feel great that you tackle a problem.

This is a very basic course, and too much time is spent on explaining basic business concepts. Videos could be much shorter with supplementary notes for those who are completely unfamiliar with business language.

A good course that delved into introductory business metrics. However, more focus should have been on increasing tangible contents rather than talking about various data-driven roles in an organization.

First 2 weeks of the course are good and easy to understand, on the other hand , the last week was extremely difficult, full of concepts that are not easy to follow and contain a lot of financial terms

Although it was an introduction course, the fact that we did not touch a single data was really awkward for a business data analysis course. Nonetheless, I admit it help me a lot to clarify my ideas.

Its to simple, it coul be more practical. And get in to the business metrics that are truly usefull for enterprises, instead is a review of what are the things that do the people in business data.

Some topics are not explained well enough and I had to search Google to find out. For example all the calculations that needs to be more detailed, explained and provide us with more examples.

I found this course interesting, but a bit too simple.
From the answers of other students that I marked many are non-native speakers of English who hadn't really understood the questions.

Would have given it four stars if it weren't for issues experienced with broken glossary links, course info errors and the lack of scope definition with the final peer review assignment.

I'd appreciate more meaningful practice and elaboration of the terms discussed. This material went by very quickly, without spending much time learning and processing vocabulary.

The examples from Amazon and Google were great, but the rest of the materials were quite mainstream, eg. cash flow, inventory. Also too much focus on the roles and marketplace.

Why were we talking about money managers and hedge funds? What does that have to do with data analytics for business? I never saw the connection and they never explained it.

The business case on the Coffee Roaster company is really helpful. For the rest, it seems to me just a collection of disparate metrics with no solid foundation.

Everything was going good until week 3, in spite of passing the course week 3 remains a little blurry in my head because of lack of explanation.

The course is informative. I love the content and the subject, but it's dry in places, and it gets challenging to maintain my attention.

Good introduction to business metrics. I was less enthusiastic about all the investment metrics and formulas, but that might just be me.

Very basic course, pretty much an introduction into the Excel to SQL specialisation. Final assignment is not too challenging.

Very basic terms. Not very helpful for later concepts and would not recommend for business professionals that have experience

A lot of time devoted to the job stuff may not be super relevant for most students, and was certainly not super relvant too.

Survey course. Excited to apply the knowledge and learn concrete skills in the upcoming courses within this specialization.

I am sure that it is more valuable to take a book or google metrics. I am not satisfied with how this course is given

need course to be more deeper in specific/each content, and the grading is quite not reflect learning results.

The course content is good. However, by the review assigment i can see that the concepts were not clear, ther

A very useful course for budding professionals. Wouldn't recommend this to middle managers / data experts.

Very good course, only 1 BIG disadvantage: you cannot take the quizzes unless you buy the certificate...
