About
Microsoft Student Accelerator is a great way for your company to work on interesting, off-beat and innovative ideas where you get a chance to take a Student team to your company over 10 weeks during the summer break.

The students will be trained by Microsoft over various industry-relevant technologies like Web, JavaScript, C#, Xamarin, Microsoft Azure and more.

In return you will be required to provide the student team with a dedicated mentor and opportunity for them to get involved in the company processes to get a feel for the industry before they graduate!

You can download and review the Employer Handbook for further details.
Get Involved
MSA is also a great way to network with the next generation of developers/IT professionals and you can showcase some of cool work you are doing directly to the students!

We will be running multiple "Tech Talk" and "Industry Talk" type sessions and encourage you to get in touch with our team at nzedu@microsoft.com to get involved in some of those.
