Help bridge the gap between the supply of and demand for analytical talent in today's business world by developing a joint certificate program with SAS.
What is the SAS® Joint Certificate program?
The SAS Joint Certificate program is designed to assist universities in preparing students to work in a data-rich business environment. The joint certificate documents students’ coursework using SAS software to solve real-world business problems, giving students a competitive advantage in the job market. It's a great way to give special recognition to students who have shown excellence in using and applying SAS technologies.
How does the SAS® Joint Certificate program work?
SAS works closely with your institution to develop a joint certificate program in a variety of areas of SAS expertise, typically as part of an existing degree program. Standalone, non-degree certificate proposals may also be considered. Your university administers the program, and SAS co-sponsors the certificate. Minimum requirements for credit hours and covered topics must be met.
- Develop new courses or choose pre-existing ones for the joint certificate program, which must include a minimum of 12 credit hours. At least half of the courses must use SAS software. Students need to complete a project using real data as part of the certificate requirements.
- Work with SAS to select a theme and title for the certificate.
- Deliver course instruction, administer the program and verify that students have met certificate requirements.
- Create and award the certificates.
- Review and approve the syllabus and all proposed course content.
- Collaborate on the certificate's theme and title.
- Provide the SAS logo to your university for use on the certificates and related marketing materials.
- Co-sign the certificates.
- Recognize your university's certificate program by promoting it on SAS websites.
The demand for the SAS certificate has exceeded our expectations. We see students from all different parts of campus – biology, political science, psychology and nursing. There’s a wide diversity of majors because what the courses teach is useful in so many fields. Jennifer Priestley Assistant Professor of Applied Statistics Kennesaw State University
