What is the MOS World Championship?

We believe that 21st century skills empower students to succeed in college and their careers. Adding in a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification can push students to the next level, giving them an additional boost when they enter higher education or the workforce.

The Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship is a global competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® (2016 or 2019). Top students are invited to represent their respective countries at the World Championship. Students are required to participate in a National Championship, and the winners of that event continue on to the World Championship.
