What does it mean to be an Authorized Educational Partner
Becoming a Microsoft Authorized Educational Partner (AEP) means that we have demostrated we were able to meet Microsoft academic clients’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft AEP authorization, we have had to complete a rigorous exam to prove our level of academic licensing and market expertise.
The AEP program is designed to train us on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorize us to purchase and resell Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrate to potential clients that we are approved and knowledgeable academic partners.
The Microsoft AEP Program is designed to authorize and equip us to deliver academic products and services through the Microsoft platform with the training, resources and support they we need to provide our clients with superior experiences and outcomes.
“By becoming AEPs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market, this authorization, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic clients the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.”
