Weaver noted, “What we said to Boise State and to Stellar was we would then like to take it one further step and say ‘could we add some additional training, additional criteria, that is unique to an MSP and that would make those graduates even more appealing to an to an MSP who would be able to identify them and hire them very quickly upon graduation?'”

This unique program will be a major benefit for graduates, allowing the next generation of the workforce to hit the ground running.. At the same time, this could also make Boise State a recruitment hub for MSPs seeking up-and-coming talent .
