  21. 21. Slovenia University of Maribor Faculty of Economics and Business Integrates MOS Certification into Programs “Microsoft Office skills are stated in a majority of job advertisements as a basic requirement,” said Dr. Simona Sternad, FEB Assistant Professor of E-business. “Earning an official certification would give our students leverage to differentiate themselves from the rest of the job applicants.” “A diploma alone is not enough to find a job, since new graduates do not typically have much to add to their list of experiences. I realized i needed to take advantage of everything FEB offered to improve my resume, and the MOS certification helped tremendously. MOS certification showed i had knowledge to perform tasks using Microsoft Office tools, and also that i was hardworking and ambitious.” According to feedback from both present and former students, the skills they learn while studying for MOS exams help them become more efficient with their assignments. Many have been hired part-time and some full-time due to their excellent Microsoft Office skills.
