SAS vs R? Taking a couple of graduate courses and need to pick which language to take it in. Currently a tech consultant if that matters.

like

Considering taking this two part course analytics course as my MS electives. Here is syllabus for part one (business analytics in R) and syllabus for part two (advanced business analytics in R) in comments. Would you say this is a good set of topics for someone interested in data science and ML? These courses are only offered in SAS or R - no Python choices. Hoping R concepts translate to Python?
