How can you put data to work for you? Specifically, how can numbers in a spreadsheet tell us about present and past business activities, and how can we use them to forecast the future? The answer is in building quantitative models, and this course is designed to help you understand the fundamentals of this critical, foundational, business skill. Through a series of short lectures, demonstrations, and assignments, you’ll learn the key ideas and process of quantitative modeling so that you can begin to create your own models for your own business or enterprise. By the end of this course, you will have seen a variety of practical commonly used quantitative models as well as the building blocks that will allow you to start structuring your own models. These building blocks will be put to use in the other courses in this Specialization....



Very clear and articulate explanation of the concepts. He doesn't skip a step in the sequencing ideas, drawing comparisons and differences, and illustrating both visually and story-telling. Excellent.


Very nice course for beginner, the mathematic level is not high (around french baccalaureat) so available to everyone. I enjoyed a lot this course that show how simple math can be used in real life.

The interface is not that great. Leaving a video at a particular time must continue from that exact point to make it easier for the learner.

I like the pace of this course . Thank you Prof Waterman for taking complex concepts and presenting them in a easy to understand format.

創建者 Jason M


This course gives us very fundamental idea of quantitative modeling but advanced modeling and/or tools. It's good for entre level students.

創建者 Rishabh G


It would have been easier to solve practical quiz questions if the module included some information on how to actually solve the problems.

創建者 Reid R


I really enjoy this class, however, when I pass the quiz, I'd like to know what the correct answers were on the questions that I missed.

創建者 Ankit P


It's a basic entry level course that briefs about important functions and distributions and methodologies used in quantitative modeling.

創建者 Malgorzata U


Material interesting, outlined and structured in good flow. Still need to investigate topic and deep dive to be able to use seamlessly.

創建者 Prateek S


Amazing Course. One suggestions: Quizzes can be more frequent in order to ins-till practise and improve retention amongst the students

創建者 Kyle A


I think it would have been helpful to have more practice in relation to more of the questions that called for solving in the quizzes.

創建者 Linda J


Good info, but I wish it incorporated some work in excel to solidify the practice of these models, which is all done in spreadsheets.

創建者 B G


More practice and questions would be helpful in solidifying these concepts, especially regarding markov chains and probability trees.

創建者 Wentong L


It's a nice course but sometimes is basic and unclear. Hope the lecturer could explain more about why and how to calculate the models

創建者 Daniela C


Great course. Some more emphasis on the actual math behind it and how to build the models would have made it better, more applicable.

創建者 Nikhil G


Really nice course. Professor explains everything so well. This course was a nice recap of high school and college math and stats.

創建者 Giovanny O S


The course is easy to follow and gives many insights about how the models can be made but especially the way they can be analyzed

創建者 abbas s


It was really helpful to learn the basic of quantitative Modeling Never thought that we can use so much of it in really practice

創建者 Eduardo R S E


A few concepts where not completely clear but as fundamentals the course gave me the ideal mind set to continue my certification.

創建者 Silvio J R G


A really good introduction to Quantitative Models. I will personally recommend it for beginners since it wraps up main concepts.

創建者 Dan M


Very very informative course, only problem is, the content is kind of dry so it requires a little more dedication than average.

創建者 Bianca F


Great course, but It would be nice to have the answers of the questions I got wrong + resolution of each question for review.

創建者 David L C P


Buen curso, pero mas que nada para las nociones básicas, no lo recomiendo si ya se tiene manejo de herramientas estadísticas.

創建者 Paul P


After getting the results of a test, it would be helpful to get an explanation of questions that a wrong answer was selected.

創建者 Andres O


Great introductory course. I'd liked to have examples with spreadsheet modeling to make more practical. But it is very good.

創建者 Thorsten W


Good basics, thoroughly developed from one step to the next. Thanks also to the course forum participans for the discussions

創建者 Nqobile T


This course really helps in understanding mathematical functions and gives you a good foundation in quantitative modelling.
