SAS Academic Programs


It's not whether you win or lose.
It's what you learn from the game. 

That’s the thinking behind a collaboration between SAS and HEC Montréal, where students can play an online simulation game and learn analytics skills using predictive modeling technology. It’s a great way for professors to bring real-world experience into the classroom and an even better way for students to build their résumés. They compete for fun now – to win jobs in the future.
