he Microsoft Student Partner Program recognizes top young minds from around the world who are passionate about technology. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop real-world skills to help you succeed in your future career, to help others learn about the technology of today and tomorrow, and to connect with other like-minded students, all whilst having a ton of fun along the way. The program is our way of encouraging students who are interested in building a closer relationship with Microsoft, and those who are simply hooked on technology, to develop their skills further.
What is an Microsoft Student Partner?
The ‘ideal candidate’ for an MSP would be a passionate and enthusiast individual who wants to learn about new tools and technologies. You would need to have a whole range of skills including excellent time management, organization and communication skills to ensure that you could host a successful campus launch event. An MSP should be comfortable and confident presenting in front of large audiences of both students and faculty members. You may even be asked to present in front of your fellow MSP’s at an event. General business and sales skills come in very handy in order to allow you to articulate your ideas effectively when presenting. MSP’s are social able, friendly and approachable individuals who like to meet new people. You will require the ability work as a team as well as use your own initiative. In summary, MSP’s are innovative and creative students who are extremely passionate about technology.
Why be an Microsoft Student Partner?
Being an MSP is a privileged and honored status for any student. In addition to the benefits listed above, the MSP Program is designed to help you get the most out of Microsoft tools and technologies, develop your skills and give you a head start in the ‘real world’ once you graduate and enter the IT industry
