Difference between MSP and MSA
Microsoft Student Partners are application builders, developers, programmers, coders, whereas Microsoft Student Associates are technology enthusiasts, student influencers who use technology for social impact. This MSA program is open to students across all disciplines and not restricted to students enrolled in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics courses. The MVP Student Mentor Program, by the way, pairs Microsoft MVP’s with MSP’s, and lets the latter gain from the expertise and experience of the former.
