Birmingham City University Builds a Strong Curriculum Using Microsoft Dynamics, Preparing Graduates to be IT Consultants
Birmingham City University has been a member of the Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance for 10 years and has used the benefits of free Microsoft Dynamics software, technical support and related curriculum materials to grow their programs in the School of Computing, Telecommunications and Networks, which help prepare graduates for careers as IT Consultants. They recently joined the Microsoft Dynamics Student Certificate Program, which allows graduates of their study programs to obtain a Microsoft Dynamics Student Certificate upon successful completion. This achievement allows their graduates to document that they have received significant Microsoft Dynamics experience in the classroom and provides a competitive advantage in the job market.
With that competitive advantage, Birmingham City University graduate, Jyoti Raju, landed a job at Vanti, a Microsoft customer in the United Kingdom. She now works as a Business Analyst for this audio visual and IT integration company. [READ MORE]
