About the MCSE SQL Business Intelligence
The MCSE in Business Intelligence validates a user’s ability to deal with big data and unlocks job opportunities as a Business Intelligence and Reporting Engineer. The two exams that make up the MCSE certify that a candidate is able to design, build, and deploy efficient and effective data solutions across an organisation.
Completing an additional two exams on top of an MCSA in SQL will qualify candidates as an MCSE, with the following exams required for the expert-level qualification:
- 70-466: Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server
- 70-467: Designing Business Intelligence Solutions with Microsoft SQL Server
For candidates that already hold an MCSA, these two exams will create an MCSE; this means that the MCSE is effectively made up of five exams in total.
MCSE Business Intelligence certifications last for three years, as Microsoft require certified big data experts to continually prove their expertise.
