SAS®, a leader company in the field of Business Analytics software, has signed a license agreement with Stevens that allows BI&A students free access to their Business Analytics software suite. You will have the opportunity to use SAS software in several BI&A courses as you proceed toward your degree.
Finally, you will have free access to SAS® E-Learning , which provides-paced learning courses on the use of SAS software in business analytics.
Students who complete the MS degree in BI&A will be eligible to receive a SAS “Certificate in Business Analytics” jointly signed by SAS and Stevens1.
We are indebted to SAS for providing this very significant support to our BI&A program.
1 Note that the “Certificate in Business Analytics” is not equivalent to SAS certification.
Under our license agreement with SAS, students taking BI&A courses are entitled to free access to SAS e-LEARNING. Knowledge of SAS will be helpful in a number of courses in our program and, of course, SAS® is used by the analytics groups in many companies so this knowledge should also be useful in your future career.

Our recommendation is that you start with the module on the SAS®Enterprise Guide manual.
