Workshops

As the market demand for professionals with analytical and problem-solving skills increases, SAS seeks to provide university students with an analytical toolset that enables them to address modern, data-intensive business problems.

To accomplish this goal, SAS is holding workshops for professors who are bringing the power of analytics to the classroom at no charge. The workshops include course materials, continental breakfast, and lunch. Travel and accommodations are the responsibility of the attendee.

The topics covered in these workshops are designed to be taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The courses are intended to encompass one semester of teaching, equivalent to four credit hours per semester. This consists of three hours of lecture per week plus a weekly lab.

Certificate Program

SAS will work closely with your institution to develop a joint certificate program in a variety of areas of SAS expertise.
