Leeds University Business School Future-Proofs Students with Microsoft Certification

Prodigy Learning are delighted to work with Leeds University Business School, a faculty of the University of Leeds.

The Business School have been offering students valuable Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification for a number of years. This year the launch of the brand-new Compass Cloud exam platform along with the business school appointing Olivia Taylor-Goy as a Graduate Intern to promote and manage MOS delivery has seen a huge increase in student engagement with the programme. With very high results. In the past 6 months, 857 students have taken one of the MOS Certification exams with an impressive 78% pass rate.

Olivia Taylor-Goy, Graduate Intern at the Leeds University Business School commented;

‘Our students have really embraced the opportunity to take Microsoft Office Specialist certification, not only does this help them stand out in the crowded graduate jobs market but it also helps with their university work as they can use the skills learned to produce better coursework for their studies’.

Along with the official Microsoft MOS certificate confirming proficiency in Office software, successful test candidates also receive a Digital Badge which they can use on LinkedIn and other social networks to showcase their skills to potential employers. The badges also link directly to live job postings on major online jobs boards meaning students can be confident they have the Office skills employers are looking for when they apply for a job after university. Having official Microsoft Office MOS certification really sets graduates apart and ensures they stand out to recruiters and employers.

Andrew Lenehan, Prodigy Learning Account Manager for University of Leeds said;

It’s a pleasure to work with Olivia and Diane Heath at University of Leeds. Their passion for making sure students take advantage of all of the extra opportunities the university has to offer is really inspiring. It has been great to see so many students take advantage of certification this year. The results speak for themselves and I’m looking forward to hearing more about how students are benefitting from their certification.’

University of Leeds is one of the leading higher education institutions in the UK. Ranked within the top 75 universities in the world and a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive universities. The Business School deliver undergraduate, Masters, MBA, PhD, executive and professional education and online study, for over 5,000 students from around 100 countries. One of a small number of business schools worldwide to be triple accredited by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification is the world’s most recognised computing qualification. Proving a person’s skills and abilities in Microsoft’s Office applications. MOS training and certification is recognised by industry and demanded by employers worldwide. MOS certification gives individuals the ability to achieve professional success in diverse professional environments, including business and finance, healthcare, computer science and IT, engineering, and more.
