Useful quantitative models help you to make informed decisions both in situations in which the factors affecting your decision are clear, as well as in situations in which some important factors are not clear at all. In this course, you can learn how to create quantitative models to reflect complex realities, and how to include in your model elements of risk and uncertainty. You’ll also learn the methods for creating predictive models for identifying optimal choices; and how those choices change in response to changes in the model’s assumptions. You’ll also learn the basics of the measurement and management of risk. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to build your own models with your own data, so that you can begin making data-informed decisions. You’ll also be prepared for the next course in the Specialization....



covers good amount of material and exactly what is in the outline, presented with enough detail to follow. Good walk-through of the spreadsheets helps understanding, easy to follow along and practice.


Material was very well presented. Week 3 was challenging, but taking time to print out the slides, work through them rigorously proved very helpful. I found all sections very, very informative.

Overall very interesting, though the teachers waffle a bit at times and question 4 in the final test is not of an acceptable standard for a fixed course.

創建者 Jason K


Good course, explanations sometime a bit hard to follow, but came away with a pretty solid understanding of how to run constraint optimizations in Excel.

創建者 Alejandra C


It's hard to understand an accent and learn a brand new material at the same time. Having subtitles was very much helpful. Great course overall, thanks!

Professor Senthil ruined Week 3 with no explanation and reading exactly the same story from the slides. Rest course is interesting and engaging. Thanks.

Good information on the use of spreadsheets. I had difficulty in Modules 3 & 4 on spreadsheet usage. Could tie instruction closer to quiz questions.

創建者 Alexis R A


Good course, watch out for week 3, it's a bit hard to follow, but otherwise good. You will learn quite a lot about simulations and decision making.

創建者 Daniel K H


Great content! My only suggestion would be a more in-depth course over a 2 or 3 month period (with the price adjusted accordingly).

創建者 Washington A D


It's an important introduction course to modeling risks. Even not a complex examples we could see the basic theory to this topic.

創建者 Morgan S


Lectures covered many applicable statistical topics. Professor could've explained a couple conclusions in greater depth.

創建者 Neha K


Course was good. would have liked more depth into the theory. Really appreciated the practical focus though.

創建者 Michael L


Well taught. The material and exams were challenging but well aligned. Best to playback at 1.25-1.5 though.

創建者 D A K


Good learn in modeling but some questions in quiz in week#4 is needed to tweak language to comprehension

創建者 Noah B


Some good sections of the course, but others are not explained well at all. Overall valuable material

創建者 Carlos P


Good course, considering the lenght of it. Do not expect a torought and detailed one, though.

創建者 Xiaojun W


Very clear structure, very well-explained! However, the course is relatively simple

創建者 Jakob P


The topics are introduced carefully and several examples are given. Easy to follow.

創建者 Andrew S


Great course very interesting. One of the lectures is very hard to understand.

創建者 Mariano C


Bit of a challenge especially coming down to the end but worth the effort.

創建者 Caio G M


The last week was a quite bit confunsing.

The rest was pretty good!

創建者 Ghanshyam


Useful for business risk analysis and modeling complex problem.

創建者 Sandeep C


Great course and with lots of techniques for modeling in Excel

創建者 Vishnu C V


Good lecture. Enjoyed the tutorial on binomial distributions

創建者 Zixiao Z


this is a good course but it's not that informative

創建者 Jiayue W


4.5 stars actually. Good overview of modeling risk.

創建者 Fereshteh A


I was hoping for more complex modeling techniques.
