Data Visualization and Business Analytics with Microsoft Power BI Training Course

Mar 22, 2023 6:00 pm Mar 24, 2023 8:00 pm

Strong data culture is a sine qua non for effective organizations in the digital age, and proprietary data insights are increasingly becoming the most important asset such organizations can accrue. Additionally, firms that are invested in crafting a compelling, authentic narrative from their data are uniquely positioned to establish enduring brands, often thriving in the dynamic markets and uncertain times we find ourselves in. When it comes to communicating such insights in service of a great mission or brand, there are few things that can beat a striking data visualization.

This virtual, interactive class will be held over three sessions on March 22-24th, see details in the schedule below. Over the duration of this course, we invite participants to explore an exciting and extensible data visualization framework (Microsoft Power BI) that allows finance and business professionals to create reports and dashboards on top of their existing data products. Participants will learn how to gather relevant data from sample spreadsheets, overcome common data preparation obstacles, and build an interactive dashboard they can publish to the web.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will have developed their own web dashboard that they can readily adapt to their own professional contexts, and which they can then use to obtain better insights into their own work and/or share it with their co-workers.

What This Course Offers:
  • Hands-on data visualization experience Microsoft Power BI and its Power Query engine
  • Every participant leaves with a working dashboard that they can connect to their
    organization’s data sources
  • Insights on how best to automate tedious data workflows with web dashboards
  • Overview of data sourcing, preparation, and visualization pitfalls
  • Course notes, certificate of completion, and post-seminar email support for 1 year An engaging and practical training approach with a qualified instructor with relevant
    technical, business, and educational experiences
Who This Is For:

The target audience for this course is finance and business professionals, but the skills we teach here are transferable across many disciplines.


There are no prerequisites for this course, though some may find it helpful to have experience with Microsoft Excel and Power Query, as Power BI uses similar formulas and frameworks.
