SAS is an avid supporter of education. It is crucial for students to acquire knowledge and skills needed to drive innovation. Today's economies are faced with the challenge of employing a workforce with skills to analyze big data and make effective decisions. The McKinsey Global Institute has indicated, "by 2018, the United States alone could face a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with deep analytical skills as well as 1.5 million managers with the know-how to use these types of analyses to drive decision making."

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) are critical for preparing the next generation of analytic talent. Studying STEM gives students the opportunities to develop knowledge and skills to work with big data and drive innovation. STEM students will be able to pursue careers that are in high demand and that have high wages. In the US, the demand for scientists and engineers is expected to increase at four times the rate of all other occupations over the next decade. If you're still wondering why you should study STEM, here are some other interesting STEM facts.

SAS employees explain why they studied STEM and describe their jobs here at SAS.
