Improvement while confined

Got a position as BA 3 weeks before COVID-19 arrived in Spain and last Friday our company announced all projects have been halted, so they carried out a temporary lay-off for 95% of employees which will probably last 3-4 months.

Since I'm a Junior BA with little experience I thought the least I could do is to improve my skills, though I am a bit lost on which course to enroll or what to learn. I know Excel basics (hotkeys, basic formulas, pivot tables, etc), same as PP. So right now I am considering the following options:

1) Try to find an advanced Excel course

2) Try to find an advanced PP course

3) Try to learn how to program Macros (VBA) but not sure if it's useful for management consulting

Right now I'm finishing this course, but it's pretty basic: https://www.coursera.org/learn/analytics-business-metrics/home/welcome (I'll also continue with the following one "Mastering Data Analysis")

Any recommendations on what I should study? Any free courses you might now?

If you were me where would you focus to improve during this 3-4 months? It would be cool to add-value (more than expected) to the company when I get back to work?

Thanks in advance for your responses and stay safe!
