Moving online was especially challenging for SAS whose educational model is based upon close individualized interaction between students and faculty. Still, we managed to do it — below is the information of what is currently going on.
Most importantly, we want to use this opportunity to open up SAS educational space and invite everybody to join in. You are welcome to join several Open courses and classes taught by SAS international faculty and watch a lot of other interesting materials in the Extra section below.
