This week on the Learn to Code Podcast Mattan Griffel, award-winning teacher of the Introduction to Programming Using Python course at Columbia Business School, and I discuss the question: “Why are MBAs learning to code?”

Over the past four years, Mattan has taught thousands of MBAs. Recently he has begun work on a textbook to scale his curriculum to business schools all around the country titled Python for MBAs.

In this episode, we’ll discuss why entrepreneurs and managers are using Python to automate routine tasks. We’ll look at student use cases, and how and why Python does a better job at data analysis than more traditional tools like Excel.
