In partnership with Microsoft, ERAU is proud to offer this exciting new bridge between one great career and another. This partnership brings the Microsoft Software and Systems Academy (or MSSA) within our acclaimed Associate in Science in Technical Management (ASTM) degree program, at selected military bases within the US. As an ASTM – MSSA student, you’ll be part of a cohort of students studying a selected area of applied information technologies specialization based on the schedule of classes at your military duty station or affiliated ERAU teaching site. You’ll take five technically-focused software and systems courses and one Math course to complete the Specialization; along the way, you’ll be able to complete the rest of your ASTM degree requirements in either traditional face-to-face, online or hybrid class formats.
In addition, if you’re a qualifying active duty Service member or recently separated Veteran, you may be eligible for additional career-enhancing services, direct from Microsoft – including the possibility of a job interview with Microsoft or one of its Technology Partner companies.
If you’re already enrolled in our ASTM program, great! You can switch to the MSSA specialization, provided you meet its specific enrollment requirements.
Leaving active duty to go into the private sector, you know that your skills, credentials and education are critical to your successful transition to a new way of life. Employers see a college degree as a demonstration of your knowledge, motivation, and persistence — qualities that will set you above and apart from the pack. The Associate in Science in Technical Management program will appeal to your background, interests, and talents and give you a competitive edge in your career, too. This curriculum was developed to give you the knowledge and skills you’ll need to marshal the resources of any organization toward its goals. Over the course of this program, you’ll learn to organize, plan, staff, and coordinate physical assets as well as personnel. When combined with the Microsoft Software and Systems Academy specialization courses, this gives you unrivaled cutting-edge knowledge, skills and abilities combined with business and management savvy!
