Business data analytics – any recommendations?

I would love to get feed back from anyone in industry who uses data analytics for management or anyone in public who does data analytics consulting.

I work in industry for a large public company, and they have offered to pay for me to take some courses on Coursera in data analytics.

There is a huge variety of courses and certificates available. I would love to hear any recommended areas I should try to make sure are included, or any specific courses you may have taken in this area. I work for a major retailer, although I am in finance, I would love to get good coverage of both financial analytics and specific areas related to retail that might be helpful in long term career development.

Thanks!
