L'école pratique des hautes études commerciales (EPHEC) in Belgium recently utilised Qlik Academic Program resources as part of their Business Data Analysis course. Lecturers Gilles Hocepied and Jeremie Colmant leveraged the free access to Qlik Sense to get their students hands on with our industry leading analytics tool.

After some introductory training, course participants were tasked with creating their own applications as part of their assessment. The students had freedom to analyse data from any subject area of their choice and they then had to present their applications and findings to staff. The array of applications create was vast, covering everything from the COVID-19 pandemic to a classic car club. You can read the full article and see examples of the students work here: https://blog.qlik.com/integrating-qlik-in-the-classroom-what-will-your-students-create

EPHEC have provided a great example of how within a short time of being introduced to Qlik Sense, students are able to be creative whilst developing sophisticated applications and making discoveries in their data. This type of exercise is a great way to simulate the kinds of responsibilities that Business Analysts would have within an organisation.

It is also important to note, that this module was already underway when EPHEC had to close due to COVID-19. Thanks to the fact that Qlik Sense is available in the Cloud and all Qlik training resources are available online, the lecturers were able to quickly pivot to remote teaching, with the students continuing their learning in Qlik Sense from home.
