BI innovates program portfolio with SAS to reflect market demand

BI Norwegian Business School enters into a strategic partnership with SAS Institute in the future-oriented new Bachelor and Master Program in Business Analytics.

"Everyone is talking about AI, Machine Learning and Advanced Analytics. We seek partnerships with the ones that make it real. Through the collaboration with SAS, our students will develop their analytical skills in an applied business context", said Pål Berthling-Hansen, Associate Professor at BI Norwegian Business School.

In addition to tailored services as part of curriculum and access to SAS software and e-learning courses, the students can qualify for Internships and Thesis Awards, participate in Hackathons and access SAS Learning Labs to practice real-world use cases.

"BI Norwegian Business School is in the forefront adding business relevance to management and analytics skills. We are excited to contribute to the education of the future analytics leaders who possess the digital expertise crucial to the competitiveness of our society and our customers", said Jørn Seglem, Managing Director at SAS Institute Norway.

Master students at BI Norwegian Business School can pursue an internship with customers and partners of SAS Institute to gain relevant work experience.

"There is a great demand from employers for talents that can unlock the potential that lies in new technology and the ever-increasing volumes of data. Through an intership within the SAS ecosystem our students will be better prepared for the big transformational projects they will manage when they graduate", said Pål Berthling-Hansen, Associate Professor at Norwegian Business School.
