Join Dr. Isaac Gottlieb in this 2-hour workshop, and learn to unleash the power of Excel to solve decision problems you thought could not be solved.

Dr. Isaac Gottlieb

Management science has developed mathematical models to solve complex decision-making problems. Excel is the best platform to solve complex management science problems without even thinking about math.

Excel is easy to use, though many users are unaware of its power to address complex problems. This workshop is not about memorizing a set of formulas and plugging in numbers to solve problems. The goal is to teach you how to use Excel to help you with complex decisions you face.

  • Learn many decision-making techniques you can use
  • Discover how to demonstrate solutions to your audience
  • Learn how to use Excel much faster and more efficiently
  • Create elaborate and animated charts

Examples will be used from practical applications and disciplines such as accounting, finance, manufacturing, operations. You can apply these techniques to commercial or not-for-profit organizations, in the private or public sector.

Who Should Attend?

  1. Current students and alumni
  2. Analysts, business decision makers and finance professionals who use Excel to solve problems and make better decisions

What will be covered?

  1. How to use Excel much faster and more efficiently; and understanding charts (from easy to intermediate)
  2. Use simple, intermediate, and advanced sensitivity analysis techniques for making decisions (intermediate)
