MCSA Office 365: Now an optional path to three MCSE tracks


You can now satisfy the prerequisites for pursuing three MCSE certifications by having either MCSA: Office 365 or MCSA: Windows Server 2012. Having these options allows you to choose the path that best meets your career path or organization’s needs.


To better align with how technology professionals deploy Lync, Exchange, and SharePoint, the Microsoft certification team has made an exciting update to the Communication, Messaging, and SharePoint MCSE certifications.

  • CLOUD-BASED: Taking the MCSA Office 365 path to your MCSE is a great choice if your organization is considering, or has deployed cloud-based solutions.
  • ON-PREMISE: For those who focus on deploying on-premise, MCSA: Windows Server 2012 is still the path for you.


The 3 eligible MCSE certifications:

  1. MCSE: Communications (Lync)
  2. MCSE: Messaging (Exchange)
  3. MCSE: SharePoint
