case studies

This course would be improved by more meaningful discussion topics (I sometimes skipped these because they didn't feel meaningful), more practice questions or simulations, and more refined case studies (with perhaps some guiding multiple choice before the open-ended final assignment).

Many case studies.-Recommend it to anyone who wants to start with a basic overview and get deeper with more in-depth courses.-If you have limited free time, this course is short!

The only addition/amendments I would recommend is additional visuals/animations to support the underlying framework, some additional case studies to support structured/semi-structred/unstructured data analytic approaches and more interactive questions during the video dialogues.

It is a good tool to introduce you to data-driven decision making Helpful course and practical case studies to assist learning.Thanks pwc team A good foundation course.

Apart from the rest, the final course case studies were brilliant and helped us to collaborate our understanding of the course.

Super Course NICE EXPERIENCE A must do for every intending decision maker I really liked the course - it is interactive, very helpful for your daily life and really ap Please add Case Studies in every week.
