The course has been updated in 2023! There are many great Econometrics courses on Udemy which sell in thousands of copies. However, busy MBA students and professionals might not have time to learn programming to run econometric models in Python, R, Stata or Eviews. MS Excel, on the other hand, is a familiar and accessible tool which can be used for advanced data analytics.
In this concise course I have carefully selected the most important econometric tools and techniques that are really needed to understand the complicated relationships that exist in your data. Linear regression is the absolute must for data analysis and Analysis ToolPak is a simple yet powerful feature available in MS Excel. The key concepts used in this course have been distilled based on my experience with many groups of business students that I have taught in three MBA programs and many companies since 2014.
This course is built around the notion of linear regression – a fantastic tool that you can use to (i) identify the strength of the relationships between variables that might exist in your data, (ii) test whether these relationships are robust in a statistical sense, and (iii) use the model for prediction. Linear regression is a classic and robust method that is easy to understand and interpret; it is widely used in the industry, and it works with virtually any data (after certain modifications).

I am a Ukrainian economist and consultant who has worked in Kyiv since 2010 and never left Ukraine even during 2022.
I have been teaching for business and professional audience since 2004 and find this experience very rewarding. I have taught for undergraduate, MA and MBA students as well as managers from various industries, government officials, journalists and even coal miners!
Managers and professionals usually do not have as much time as students, hence, I make my courses concise with focus on business applications rather than theory.
After obtaining PhD in Economics from the University of Iowa (2010) I have been Assistant and then Associate Professor at KSE. I have also consulted companies on data analytics in energy and FMCG sectors and participated in projects with USAID, World Bank, EBRD, the Economist Intelligence Unit. Finally, I am the author of 17 publications at SCOPUS.
