Building the skilled workforce

SAS is working to build the analytics and technology empowered future workforce.

“An education to establish a strong foundational knowledge is crucial for anyone thinking about an Analytics career. Not only that, the University is where new thought leadership and advanced Analytics solutions are developed. By having a formal education, students will be well-prepared for the different Analytics challenges that arise in the different business contexts and be able to translate this knowledge into applied skills. That’s why partnering with SAS is so important.”
