All School of Business students are invited to earn a Microsoft Excel certification! Prior registration is required here. For questions related to registration please contact Ms. Horner at

The excel certification is being offered at two levels: Associate and Expert. The topical coverage of the Associate and Expert levels is described here.

During the 2020 Spring semester, we encourage all School of Business students to earn a Microsoft Excel certification. All students can take each test for free up to two times if the same (Associate or Expert) level is involved, and up to three times if a combination of Associate and Expert levels are involved.

Spring testing will take place on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, 2/5/20, 11:00am-12:00pm
  • Friday, 2/21/20, 2:00-3:00pm

Register here!

In order to better prepare to take the certification test, the School of Business is offering Excel workshops with finance Professor Pat Singkamanand.

  • Failing to attend the workshop (after signing up) will prevent you from attending other free Excel workshops this academic year. There will be no exceptions.
  • Bring your laptop to the workshop, if possible.

What does a workshop cover?
