Excel/VBA for Creative Problem Solving, Part 3 (Projects)

University of Colorado Boulder via Coursera


In this course, learners will complete several VBA projects. It is highly recommended that learners first take "Excel/VBA for Creative Problem Solving, Part 1" and "Excel/VBA for Creative Problem Solving, Part 2". This course builds off of skills learned in those two courses. This is a project-based course. Therefore, the projects are quite open-ended and there are multiple ways to solve the problems. Through the use of Peer Review, other learners will grade learners' projects based on a grading rubric.


  • Getting Started
    • This first module introduces the course and provides some background material. Paid learners have access to the course files, which are unlocked when you complete the "Unlock Quiz".
  • Easy Projects: Lesson Choices
  • Intermediate Projects: Lesson Choices
  • Monte Carlo Simulation
    • All learners are required to complete the Monte Carlo simulation, which is intermediate in difficulty.
  • Grade Manager Project (for Honors)
    • If you are really up for a challenge, complete the Grade Manager project, which is very challenging. Learners who successfully create this project will earn an Honors designation on their Course Certificate.
