The Microsoft Dynamics Student Certificate Program (MDSCP) supports the use of Microsoft Dynamics products in educational institution curricula, giving students additional opportunities to use real-world solutions across multiple courses. The ability to offer Microsoft Dynamics Student Certificates (MDSC) is reserved exclusively for Academic Members of the Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance (DynAA) who meet the program requirements.
Requirements to Earn a Microsoft Dynamics Student Certificate
A student can earn an MDSC from a MDSCP-approved institution by successfully completing a minimum of 100 student activity hours or four European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) credits focused on Microsoft Dynamics in a MDSCP-approved course. Student activity hours or ECTS credits can incorporate multiple Microsoft Dynamics products.
For DynAA Academic Members
The MSDCP provides measurable requirements for educational institutions to differentiate their institution and their students as having significant standards-based exposure to Microsoft Dynamics solutions through coursework.
Application Process for DynAA Academic Members
Educational institution identifies an MDSCP faculty contact and sends this information to Microsoft at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the process of becoming an approved MDSCP member and to receive the official MDSCP application.
Identified MDSCP faculty contact submits the following to Microsoft at email@example.com for consideration:
- Completed MDSCP application (in English).
- Course outline/syllabus (in English).
- Student evaluation method (for example, pass/fail; 4.0 scale; other).
Microsoft reviews the submitted material and determines if the minimum criteria for the MDSCP is achieved.
The MSDCP provides students the ability to document their familiarity with Microsoft Dynamics in a standardized and recognized way.
Application Process for Students
Speak with your academic advisor about courses offered by your educational institution that qualify you to earn an MDSC.
Enroll in and pass the Microsoft-approved course that exposes you to at least 100 total student activity hours or four ECTS credits of Microsoft Dynamics–related content.
Contact Microsoft at firstname.lastname@example.org upon completion of the course to complete the required steps to receive your MDSC.
The MDSCP allows employers to focus their recruiting efforts on educational institutions producing graduates with a higher level of Microsoft Dynamics product knowledge.
