Today’s young people are far more computer literate than any previous generation. While this may be true for mobile apps and social networking, it is not necessarily the case for business software such as Microsoft Office, particularly Excel. There is a significant gap between students’ perceived self-proficiency of Office skills and the actual assessment of those skills. Being a mandatory requisite for business professionals, we have made Microsoft Office Specialist (excel) certification mandatory for our students. This would add value to their Resume and would help them increase their proficiency, confidence and effectiveness in performing their assigned tasks.
