Brunel Business School students have been undergoing rigorous training today as part of Business Life employability programme to master key SAS skills in data, business and statistical analytics in a full day SAS Enterprise workshop led by Dr Maged Ali.

Using the SAS software package students learned about using and manipulating the SAS Enterprise Guide Software, gaining an overview of Business Analytics, data manipulation, predictive modelling using decision trees and regression, clustering and segmentation, design of experiments, time series analysis and forecasting plus statistical and graphical reporting, featuring corporate case studies and hands on exercises.

Dr Ali commented:

“I have confidence that this workshop and others in the SAS training series that we plan to carry out will give them a head-start in one of the most in-demand employability skills in the market”

The workshop follows a very successful SAS Career Fair, which took place late last year in Brunel Business School, attracting over 250 students, 15 universities, and 100 jobs on offer from 10 SAS customers and partners.
