Tarik Dzambic won third place at the Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship, a competition in New York, and showed again that Bosnia and Herzegovina has an abundance of young, promising people facing a prosperous future.
The International MOS Competition brought together participants from more than 130 countries.
“To win third place and a bronze medal among many competitors is an extraordinary feeling. I am proud of my entire team as well as the professor who has been my support all along with my parents, school and friends. Also, without a national competition behind UNSA’s Faculty of Economics, it would be impossible to qualify for the world level. For the second year in a row, we are coming back with a medal and we have proven that effort and work always pays off in the end,” said Tarik Dzambic.
The Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship presented by Certiport, Inc. is a global competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® (2013 or 2016). 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.
Anyone may participate in the qualification round of testing, but to participate in the World Championship, candidates must be students that are enrolled in an approved, degree-seeking academic institution recognized by the state or country in which it operates. Students must also be between the ages of 13 and 22.
