Description
In the Excel Skills for Business Credential, learners develop advanced Excel Skills for Business. After completing this credential, learners can design sophisticated spreadsheets, including professional dashboards, and perform complex calculations using advanced Excel features and techniques. Learners will have acquired the skills to manage large datasets efficiently, extract meaningful information from datasets, present data and extract information effectively. In addition, learners will have mastered the skills needed to validate data and prevent errors in spreadsheets, create automation, apply advanced formulas and conditional logic to help make decisions and create spreadsheets that help forecast and model data.

This credential begins with an introductory video where senior contracting leaders discuss the importance of acquiring a data analytics skillset. From there, students will take a series of Excel courses from Intermediate I to Advanced. Finally, students will view a DoD Application, which highlights how a contracting professional can leverage Enterprise Resource Planning data and Excel to analyze support and touch labor on a major contractor proposal.

DAU is leveraging the Excel Skills for Business Specialization series from Macquarie University, available through DAU under a license with Coursera for this credential. If students do not feel prepared for the more advanced courses, or if they merely want a refresher, they can enroll in the Coursera - Excel Skills for Business: Essential prior to enrolling in CCON 002.
