About this class

We’ve all heard of Microsoft Excel, and yet a surprising number of people have little to no experience using it. In this class — ideal for people working in business, management, or simply interested in getting more organised — you’ll learn the basics of the application, including calculation, formatting, and charts.

There will also be an introduction to some intermediate functions such as VLOOKUP and Pivot Tables. A basic understanding of Excel goes a very long way when it comes to managing your job or business.

This is an interactive class, and your participation and questions are encouraged.

Takeaways

  • Learn basic and intermediate Excel functions
  • Input, gather, massage, and format data for more productive use and sharing
  • Output and package data for external consumption
  • Analyse data to improve decision making
  • Go through an actual case study and utilise Excel to facilitate decisions

Prereqs & Preparation

Students should have a general familiarity with Excel, including knowing how to navigate a spreadsheet, and how to copy & paste.

Please bring a laptop with Microsoft Office installed either on PC or Mac.

*Note that while there may be differences in how Microsoft show certain functions in their menus across the different versions, all functions referred to in the course should be available no matter which version you are using. The instructor will be using a PC.
