    A lot of the lecture material is unclear and does not fit with the content I’ve learned from other BI books, lectures, and experience. Additionally, the quizzes don’t seem to test for real world BI knowledge, rather they test for the ability to interpret the instructors fairly unique views on some BI topics. Furthermore, the additional readings need to be culled significantly, it looks like someone just googled BI topics and then copy and pasted the links they found. Please prioritize the additional readings highest value to lowest value and then post only the 4 to 7 reading that rank the highest. A pairwise comparison process may be useful when doing this.

    1*(star) to the professor very difficult to understand the professor many times. Even the subtitles fail sometimes to present what he says. 5*(star) to the content of the course and especially the tool used to explain and learn the BI concepts. I have already recommended the tool to couple of companies.

    Very slow course, there are significant redundancies. The resource links are often obsolete, and there’s a really high number of errors on slides the kinds that would really mess up somebody’s career, if they worked in BI.

    There are too few students taking this course! I had to wait multiple weeks to get my assignments rated. Questions in the forum get viewed by about only two people and you will never get an answer. Really disappointing!

    This course is not interesting when compared to previous courses 1,2 and 3. Its hard to comprehend the lectures and the training videos provided for Microstrategy doesn’t provide much support when it comes to assignments. I feel that the overall exposure to Microstrategy tool we get through this course is very minimal.

    The content of this course is excellent as well as the optional material. I would qualify as deficient the teacher’s pronunciation and as boring the performance. It has been difficult for me to follow him.

    Is this course an advertisement for Microstrategy ? A lot of videos come directly from the company. I don’t have anything against that company, but business and learning are 2 very different things. The link with Microstrategy seems to have led to lazyness : so many low effort contents (assignments directly taken out of the Microstrategy website, poor structure of shared documents, etc.), endless auto promotion of the book of the teacher. I really felt like the CEO of Microstrategy was kind enough to share with me his views on BI (which might be the goal of Microstrategy with their partnership with the university). I am not happy having paid for this. The other courses of the specialization are great though. Please remove and rework this particular Course 4 from the specialization.

    Great course Some of the ressources (for reading) are not up to date or doesn’t exist anymore ! For the exercice, it involves a lot of executing and less of analyzing, understanding and thinking, I would have loved to exercice more in these skilss required for BI projects Thank you for this course

    I could not quite decide on the rating for this course but in the end I would rate it four stars. Overall, it provided a good introduction to BI. The content is covered on a high level but has the essentials to get you started. Unfortuntately, the lecturer was a bit hard to understand at times. The supplementary notes were very helpful. Parts of this course were contrasting with other popular BI books. But that’s what happens with blurry concepts such as BI. I liked the assignments although sometimes the instructions were a little unclear and you have to wait quite some time for your reviews and you have to wait for assignments that you can review. Overall, I recommend this course for getting started with BI.

    Content wise a very good and useful course. But the technical support on the installation and use of the software needed to complete the course is very limited, and the manuals are not up to date, as they refer to older versions of the proposed software.

    If you are into MiroStrategy this is your course otherwise i didnt gain much beside exposure to Microstrategy. I would suggest to creator of this course to make this course to be PowerBi or Tablaue friendly.
