What is an MSP?

A MSP is the point of contact between students and Microsoft. They help other students find out about the initiatives we put in place such as Developer movement and Imagine Cup. If you like free stuff or helping the world make sure to check those two links out. This last semester we had March App Madness Hack-a-thons which were coordinated events across Canada to teach and then let students develop their own Windows Phone 7 Apps! All thanks to our MSPs. They organized the events, gave tutorials and helped guide the rest of the students in the development of their app.

We are always on the lookout for those highly energetic students that want to get involved with our technology! If you are one of them, apply now!

Wait there’s more!

The MSP position is not all about work. We have a line up of great rewards as a thank you for all the effort you put into it. For starters, MSP  get a full MSDN account. More than 5000$ value! (This convinced me when i joined. Nothing like Legal free software)

  6. I'm a Post Gradute but I really want to join MSP, can I? Please assist.

  7. Susan Ibach says:

    It varies from country to country, but some countries do accept graduate students as MSP. When you say post-graduate, if you mean you are working on your masters or PhD you may still want to apply. You can then discuss with your country rep if they accept students at your level into the program.

    @vimalkarthik visit select the country where you are a student, and you will find information on how to apply. The process does vary a bit from country to country. Usually you can apply at that website, but just be aware that you may not be contacted right away because they may only do interviews at certain times of the year.
