Course Information

Professional Development

Professional Development Services offers programs that enhance professional skills and overall competencies for increased workplace efficiency and effectiveness.

Technology Training

MSU IT training has been transitioning from traditional classroom delivery of content to web-based delivery methods over the past couple of years.

This has been possible, in large part, by partnerships the university has formed with third party vendors (e.g., New Horizons, SkillSoft). Remaining instructor-led courses are posted in EBS.


New Horizons Offerings

MSU partners with New Horizons to provide a wide range of technical training, desktop applications, ITIL training, and programming language courses for MSU employees and departments. You will find a wide variety of business and technology classes in the New Horizons Training Portal for MSU. (EBS no longer offers New Horizons course registrations.)

You can use Educational Assistance funds if available, a departmental credit card, or a personal credit/debit card as payment. Please review the updated registration process for New Horizons offerings.
