SAS is offering free workshops in Advanced Business Analytics or Data Mining to educators again this summer!


Organizations today are dealing with diverse issues, a wider range of regulations and heightened global competition.  Insights gleaned from data about customers, suppliers, operations and performance will provide companies an edge in solving complex business problems. The market demand for professionals with data management, analytical and problem solving skills is high. Are your students prepared?

If you are teaching, or planning to teach Business Analytics or Data Mining, these workshops are a great way to prepare for your course.  Each workshop provides coverage of the core concepts and includes plenty of hands-on exercises.  The workshops also provide attendees an opportunity to network with other colleagues who are teaching these courses or are in the process of preparing for their first offering.  Attendees receive all teaching materials and data sets which can be incorporated into their courses.

The workshops are free of charge to university professors.  In addition to the training, breakfast and lunches are also provided.  Attendees are responsible for their travel and lodging during the workshop. Registration is now open for these offerings.

If you are a professor and are interested in these workshops, SAS would like to invite you to attend one or both of our weeklong summer workshops for educators.  Both workshops will be held at SAS headquarters in Cary, NC.
