Macquarie University business school is partnering with analytics provider SAS to offer SAS Certification as part of its online global MBA program.

The entirely online program - launched in May this year – is focused on building “future-focussed capabilities” and, according to Macquarie, is the first such degree to be offered on the popular Coursera platform – in which SAS is also a partner – in the Asia Pacific region.

The curriculum is designed to build six cross-disciplinary management capabilities – leading, strategising, analysing, influencing, adapting and problem solving - which have been highlighted by the World Economic forum as the skills needed in the workplace of the future.

The course also features a stackable model that allows students to earn certificates and start learning before committing to the full program.

Speaking at the signing of the partnership agreement, Associate Professor Lan Snell – Macquarie Business School’s Academic Program Director for the Global MBA – said, “We are proud to partner with SAS, one of the leading enterprise analytics providers.

“The future of work and learning is about collaboration and building ecosystems to optimise the learning experience and student choice. SAS has a strong learning culture and our partnership with them demonstrates this value. Co-creating curriculum, thought leadership, and developing learning pathways for SAS workforce through the Global MBA are just some areas where we are creating values.”

David Bowie – Vice President of SAS Australia and New Zealand – said, “SAS congratulates the Macquarie Business School for the far-sighted concept and objectives of the Global MBA.

“As highlighted by the 2018 Deloitte Millennial Survey – which found that 43 percent of millennials expect to change jobs within two years and 62 percent consider ‘gig’ careers viable – rising generations are increasingly seeking to equip themselves with the skills they will need in the future, whatever careers they follow.”

SAS Certification graduates of MGSM’s Global Online MBA program will also qualify as SAS Certified Visual Business Analysts and will be listed as such in the SAS Certified Professional Directory, which is commonly accessed by employers and recruitment agencies, internationally.
