Advanced Topics in Excel

7/9/2013 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM


Virtually everyone who works with data could benefit by gaining a better understanding of Microsoft Excel. This class will extend beyond the simple addition of data and will put students in a position where Excel is no longer a chore, but a powerful tool to assist in manipulating data efficiently. You’ll learn various functions to help you organize and analyze data and go through situational overviews of time-saving shortcuts to improve your efficiency dramatically.


-Learn how to easily manipulate datasets using pivot tables and other functions.

-Find out how to leverage the onboard statistical analysis tools to make effective conclusions on data.

-Master the art of shortcuts to streamline the process of analysis in Excel.


Students should have a basic understanding of Excel and rudimentary functions (IF, SUMIF statements) as well as how to organize data into functional tables (i.e. how to create a data table in Excel with a simple understanding of sort and filter functionality).

Students should bring a laptop with Excel 2010 installed. PC-based laptops are preferable, though not required (certain shortcuts may not transfer directly into Excel for Mac).
