"QlikView fits perfectly with my curriculum, and it is so easy to learn that students are able to build BI applications after a few classes. Working with QlikView, we are giving students the opportunity to tackle real-world business problems, and with this type of experience, students can be productive a lot sooner in their future endeavors."

Wenhong Luo, Associate Professor of Accounting & Information Systems.

"Because QlikView is a simple and easy tool for students to wrap their heads around, I was able to spend more time in class working with them to build their applications and hone their skills, rather than getting a complicated BI tool to work properly. Seeing my students achieve their 'a-ha' moments thanks to QlikView made this one of my most memberable semesters yet."

RJ Podeschi, Assistant Professor of Information Systems.


“The students found QlikView’s demonstrations very simple. They had no issues understanding and learning how to use the tools. It says a lot about the product that young minds can use it so easily to create ‘what-if’ analysis and other complex business scenarios within days.”

Keith Carter, Adjunct Associate Professor, Decision Sciences.
