If you are an aspiring business major or are currently in Fisher, you know that one of the most dreaded pre-requisite classes is CS&E 200 (Computer Science & Engineering). For those of you who do not know, this class teaches the ins-and-outs of Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. When I took the class, I took it during my least favorite season, winter, and it was at 8:30 in the morning. Throwing on my winter coat and boots to go to this class seemed close to impossible, but I always went. When the teacher said “this is one of the most important classes of your business studies,” I thought to myself “yeah right.” Yeah she was right. I have used excel everyday at my internship, so if you were debating not paying attention in class, take out your pencils and notebook and listen up! Here are my top three things to remember from CS&E:
Excel is an extremely useful tool. Some people at your workplace may not have as good of an understanding of Excel as you do, so it’s fun being able to teach them something. I think Excel formulas are really great tools for problem solving and saving time. If you have any Excel questions, I wouldn’t mind answering any of them for you!
