One of the encouraging changes we’ve seen at SAS Global Forum over the years is the excitement and involvement from the student community. These are the people we like call -- the next generation of analytics professionals.
The SAS Student Ambassador Program was successful again this year, and the newest addition to the conference was the Student Symposium competition. Here’s a short video interview I did with the winning team from the Université Laval in Canada.
Many more students presented papers during the conference, and we thought it would be helpful to highlight a few so you can see what some of your peers are doing.

While at the conference, I also had the opportunity to interview two students from Oklahoma State University who used SAS to analyze IMDb ratings. I couldn’t believe what the data revealed about Ben Affleck movies.
And it’s never too early to make plans to attend SAS Global Forum 2017 in Orlando, April 2-5. Whether you’re a student or a SAS professional, it’s a great place to present and network with fellow SAS enthusiasts.10 student papers from SAS Global Forum 2016 #SASGF Click To Tweet
