"As an inventory control buyer with a strong interest in further pursuing the analytical side of the business, I found the Aryng's Hands-On Business track very beneficial. The principles and framework taught, gave me the confidence to trust in my decisions and the hands on exercises provided me with the skillset to apply my learnings to real world situations... The online training afforded me the scheduling flexibility I needed at a cost I could afford. I would highly recommend this program for anyone looking to transform their career and looking for a timely, flexible and cost effective means of doing so."

Simona G

Marketeer, Tellus

"Hi, I am Simona Georgescu, I live and work in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In 2014 I was considering a shift from all-round B2B Marketing to a more ROI, data-driven Marketing. I was not only fascinated by the business insights generated by my Business Intelligence colleagues, but I also came to realize that I would love to use my quantitative and analytical skills to their fullest. So when Data Analysis came out as the skill needed to fill in the gap, it took me a good couple of weeks of internet search to eventually choose Aryng´s Business Analytics and Testing online module.This online course is really great. Piyanka and Mukul dive into the dry statistical methods and apply them directly to real-life scenario’s and cases: travelling agency, online gaming company, e-commerce company Umzon and Shamzon. The hands-on Excel walk-throughs are a wonderful practical tool. The cases focus as much on the business briefing process and actionable recommendations rolling out from the analysis as it focus on the data handling and analysis itself. There is brief reference to the tooling available when it comes to data warehouse management, reporting & visualisation and Marketing automation.Last not least, following these modules I got a context to place the data analysis as very specific skill. Some of the online study hours I experienced as real consulting sessions with professionals in big data Analytics. They come with those do’s and don’ts which are crucial to effectiveness in a role as a Data Analyst. What I personally appreciate is also the fact that Piyanka is accessible and responsive in the communication during the course. I warmly recommend the Aryng online courses."
