What is the MOS World Championship?

The Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship presented by Certiport is a global competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office Word, Excel® and PowerPoint®. Top students are invited to represent their respective countries at the World Championship. In some countries or regions, students are required to participate in a National Championship, and the winners of that event continue on to the World Championship.

Individual partners/countries may have additional published rules.
