  1. Hi, I saw this on twitter and was wondering if you are interested in learning more about Qlik’s Academic Program? We give away free licenses to our Data Analytics Software. Is this something the university would be interested? Thank you, Dorte

    • Many universities provide courses of business analytics or data mining, and they would be interested in that. I know that SAS and IBM provided education licenses of their analytics software for free to some universities for business analytics courses.
