  • Testimonials

    “I immediately started using Tableau and Microsoft Bi to see what would be the best solution not only for myself to communicate with my Executive team, but what others would like to use to assist in improving a data driven culture. … I wanted to use the program to close gaps where I often struggled or just become more efficient at what I was able to do. It has improved my skills and thought process considerably in a short time.”

    “I developed a broader and more sophisticated understanding of how Data Science as a whole is impacting multiple areas of human activity and how companies are using data to developed new value streams at a rapid pace… GBAC has certainly been a strong assist in allowing me to engage in conversation with my clients on a level I couldn't beforehand."

    “The classes were very useful and I realized when I was consulting how much companies need these skills sets of being able to look at data and actually understand what story is being told by the numbers. I really think this skill will move to being required instead of preferable by companies.”

    Senior Consultant

    “What I learned in the GBACP program gave me the confidence to pursue positions that required a higher skill set in analyzing and visualizing data. … I’ve had so many doors opened to me. Which ultimately led me to work at a company that highly values the analytics team and the work that I do.”
