How is this course different to other Power BI courses?

We have designed this course specifically for corporate business roles by using our internship and full-time experience at top-tier companies such as Tesla, Amazon, and Goldman Sachs. Other courses tend to fill their curriculums with theoretical and unrealistic work examples that don’t consider important real-world business factors. With this in mind, we’ve created our lessons in the course using real-life examples with our McDonald’s Sales Report and Nike P&L Finance Dashboard. We also include an interactive discussion forum to help students with additional inquiries.

Do I need to pay for Power BI software?

Nope. You can complete the entire course using Microsoft’s FREE Power BI Desktop App. You can download the app by searching for it in your computer’s Microsoft Store or by going to https://powerbi.microsoft.com/downloads/

What are the pre-requisites for this Power BI course?

You don’t need any prior business or technical knowledge. All you need is a computer with Excel and Power BI.
