AES-SAS Academic Initiative
The academic initiative between AES and SAS Romania emerged from the need to strengthen research in the field of business analytics within the Faculty of Cybernetics, Statistics and Economic Informatics.
Thus, on 14 December 2009 was launched the SAS Center of Excellence, under the guidance of two departments from that time: Economic Informatics and Statistics and Econometrics.
2010 marked the beginning of the construction of the first SAS laboratory equipped with machines and computer software SAS Analytics Pro in the Department of Statistics and Econometrics and the creation of an infrastructure for running specific SAS applications in the department of Economic Informatics' laboratories.
SAS was first introduced in the syllabi of Software packages discipline, which was considered a pilot project and where SAS Business Analytics solutions provided an important informatics support.
