Hi, I’m Max Jacobson, founder of MakeMeExcel. The MakeMeExcel mission is to provide you all the help you need to excel in your career. We want to support you and to give you a place to learn, both from us, and also from your peers around the world.
We’ve worked hard to create a place where you both take courses tailored for analytics and problem solving, as well as ask questions you might be afraid or unable to ask at work—in an effort to create a “go to” forum for key topics ranging from technical Excel functionality, to model design, to step-by-step approaches to handling the high-pressure environment that is your job. We hope you like it here.
What makes us think that this is the right place for you? The content we deliver is informed by my own experience, both as a consultant at BCG and as a professional trainer. The media elements we provide are developed by our production team, a group that has years of experience creating online learning for both corporations and Ivy League universities. We are committed to offering best-in-class courses and an optimal learning environment.
We know how to build the skills you need to succeed at your job, and we’re truly excited about helping you achieve your goals. If there’s anything we can do to help or content you’d like to see, just send us an email and we’ll do our best.
