The People Analytics course is amazing! It provides theoretical foundations & in-depth knowledge, as well as hands-on practical exercises with very relevant examples and cases. The course gave me a lot of insights and help me understand an area that most people has only been "learning by doing". The statistics part is a great refresher for those who has psychology background, but with more practical use-cases that can be easily implemented in our work as HR professionals!
