How Can We (Microsoft) Learn From Others (Apple)?


Last night at the Computing and Information Systems Club meeting, I got to chat with our campus's Apple Campus Rep, Alex Patterson. Alex is a good friend of mine and recently became the campus rep for Apple.

We are going to begin working together more to help promote general technology on campus and I will post more in a few days about what the Student Ambassador program can learn from Apple and maybe what Apple can learn from MSA.

Do you know who your Student Ambassador or Apple Campus Rep is?

    As far as I know, neither programme extends to the UK… Maybe that would be a good start?

    Telecaster –

    The Student Ambassador program is actually a global program. While I don’t have the details on all of the SA programs around the world, I will make an action item to get this information out.

    I can’t speak to Apple’s program, but Microsoft has programs similar to Student Ambassador running in countries around the world. In the UK it is the Microsoft Student Partner (MSP) Programme. Check it out here: http://www.microsoft.com/uk/academia/students/programmes/student-partner-programme/

    Well being Eric’s friend it is very easy to agree to this learning agreement. To represent technology fully and equally in a educational setting, I believe that we can call this a common ground and learn from each other. Microsoft has a lot of pull, I mean look at what office suite Apple is now using as almost a standard. However looking at hardware I think that Apple is leaps and bounds ahead. But as a whole we definetly need to show all students what is out there 🙂

    Thanks for the links guys, I’ll definitely investigate this.
