The answer is right before you. Go back through the course work, redo all of the exercises, and reread all the course work.

The question would be, what do you want?
SSIS and SSAS are great tools for BI development. If you already know SSRS, you can go all the way.
You must evaluate both jobs and consider that you'll have to learn many things fast enough to do your job.
I'll say go with the offer, but I don't know the whole scenario.

Review the coursework, keeping in mind how much experience level they are looking for.
If you have dealt with SSAS in SSRS reports, that would be a good start.
And a bonus if you will have coworkers to help understand what they have built.

If you will be the sole developer and they are looking for a seasoned one in these skills, it might not be a good fit.
SSAS requires a bit more discipline, and MDX is a bit different than SQL.
Sounds like a good move if you are ready for the challenge.

Also, find out if you are going to be expected to administer the instance as well. All too often I see other folks get thrown into the fire. Nevertheless, I would think about doing some other things other than what is posted:

1. Learn the basics of both modes of SSAS - Multidimensional and Tabular.
2. Get familiar with how SSIS and SSAS interact in both standard and enterprise versions.
3. Practice, Practice, Practice MDX. Then PRACTICE AGAIN!
4. Read the Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services Performance and Operations Guide for both the Multidimensional Model and the Tabular model (if you are supporting the tabular model).

These guides may seem to have more advanced topics in them, but it is great at connecting the dots.
