The Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance (DynAA) works with educational institutions worldwide, helping them use Microsoft Dynamics in their curriculum, exposing students to the latest Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technologies to give them a competitive advantage in the job market.
This is your chance to differentiate your program and take your curriculum to the next level! We invite you to join us in learning how intelligent business applications can empower your students to be the best of tomorrow’s workforce. You will have the opportunity to network with peers, alumni, Microsoft partners and Microsoft. By engaging with faculty interested and experienced in using Microsoft technology, you will be able to collect valuable information, resources, and best practices to better prepare your classroom and your students!
Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a suite of intelligent business applications encompassing Operations (ERP), Sales and Customer Service (CRM) solutions. When used in a realistic learning environment, Microsoft Dynamics allows students to gain a holistic understanding of business processes and interactions across roles and departments, helping to better prepare students for business using today’s technology. Integrating Microsoft technology into your curriculum can demonstrate thought leadership, relevance, and innovation.
