Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance: Creating tomorrow’s workforce

Posted on: March 11, 2015 | By: Jarrod Kraemer | Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Dynamics AX/365, Logan Consulting News, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics Manufacturing

The Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance is a partnership that cultivates the education of complex ERP systems in universities across the United States and all over the globe.  These schools give their students the knowledge and functional ability to utilize Microsoft Dynamics with their future employers.  The students gain unprecedented access to these systems that translate to values desired in the real world.  The situation is mutually beneficial as Microsoft ensures that young, bright minds will be filling a void of skilled workers that are familiar with their software.  The graphs below give a visual representation of how many institutions are offering the different types of software.

Recently, Logan Consulting Principal Partners, Jim Bertler and Jarrod Kraemer guest lectured at DePaul University – College of Computing and Digital Media.  They discussed a typical project life cycle starting with the sales process and moving through the detailed steps of the implementation.  Also, they gave an overview of the Logan Consulting methodology, which is our best practice approach to implementing an ERP system.  They illustrated the multiple phases a project transitions through with two customer case studies, which demonstrates how the software is applied in real world scenarios.  Overall, the lecture provided the students an effective learning experience to see how their education will translate to their future careers.

Along with DePaul University, here are the other Universities/Colleges in the Midwest offering Microsoft Dynamics curriculum.
