It is estimated there will be a need for thousands of additional Microsoft Dynamics AX consultants worldwide in the next five years. To bring students and the business community an affordable and convenient way to learn, the University of Mary and Stoneridge Software have formed a partnership to offer Microsoft Dynamics AXcourses online. The courses, taught by the team at Stoneridge Software and offered by the University of Mary, prepare current users or those interested in Microsoft Dynamics AX for certification tests.
"These types of classes teach key components that people need to know in order to successfully implement Microsoft Dynamics AX," said Stoneridge Software President Eric Newell. "It is important that a business learn as much as they can about the software solution they use, in order to reduce consulting fees and eliminate the need to attend more expensive training sessions. We are hoping that customers, partners and anyone interested in Microsoft Dynamics AX will take the time to attend these convenient classes."
Microsoft Dynamics AX is Microsoft's flagship accounting software for mid to large businesses. It is a broad, agile and flexible platform designed to increase efficiency in financial and operational processes. Stoneridge Software has a globally recognized team of experts in all areas of the product, from development to finance, and manufacturing to project management.
Classes in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Development will begin Nov. 18, and courses in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Installation and Configuration and Project Management will begin Nov. 19. Further details and registration information can be accessed at www.umary.edu/microsoftdynamics.
"Our Microsoft experts have taught these classes numerous times, in many different formats and are pleased to bring accessibility online," said Newell. "If you are an existing Microsoft Dynamics partner, the classes being offered by U-Mary are a great opportunity to earn credit while taking advantage of an instructor-led online course."
Based on the resource needs within the Microsoft Dynamics market, the University of Mary has joined the Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance, partnering with Microsoft to help meet current and future resource demands.
"We are very pleased to be working with the University of Mary," said Katie Hasbargen, program manager of the Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance. "By offering their students the ability to learn about Enterprise Resource Planning software and more specifically Microsoft Dynamics AX, they are providing their students with a fantastic opportunity to make themselves extremely valuable in the job market or in their current career."
"The University of Mary is excited to partner with Microsoft and Stoneridge Software," said Rachael Brash, director of University of Mary Worldwide. "U-Mary is always looking to serve the needs of the people in this region and beyond. Our partnership provides the best of both worlds—high quality curriculum developed by Microsoft and Stoneridge Software and an innovative educational experience backed by a respected university."
