Stories from our learners

Harleen, edX Student

"This world was something in which I was a complete newbie, so I was looking for a comprehensive, step by step program that I could tackle without having a data science background... I saw value overnight, since I was able to use the information I was learning almost immediately. The moment I started to complete courses, for example the Programming with R for Data Science course, I was able to quickly use the information to help actual Microsoft customers and solve real world problems."
