Fill the skills gap.
By 2018, demand for workers skilled in analytics could outpace supply by 60 percent – or 1.5 million jobs – according to a McKinsey Global Institute study. Translation? Anyone with analytic prowess will be in high demand from employers around the world. What's more, a recent Monster.com article, "Job Skills That Lead to Bigger Paychecks," named SAS as the skill that nets the biggest paycheck. Bottom line, if you’re a student, learning SAS is a great way to prepare for – and secure – your future. If you’re a teacher or professor, teaching SAS is a great way to attract top students and to equip tomorrow's workers with the skills they'll need to succeed.
