Does Microsoft issue a certification in project management?


One of my colleagues told me that Microsoft issues a certification in project management, similar to their MCSE and MCSD.

I have several questions:

- Is this true?
- If it's true, then what is its name? And what are the eligibility requirements, the passing score, and how can someone apply?
- Does this certification (again, if it exists) carry weight in the corporate world? In other words, do companies look upon this certification favorably when selecting candidates for a job?

Technically, Microsoft does not issue a project management certification such as the PMP, but it offers the "Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)" which encapsulates some project management in it, specifically the following tests:

- 70-6322, 70-6332, 70-6342 under the "Enterprise Project Management with Microsoft Office Project Server 2007" of this certification and...
- 70-667, 70-668 under "SharePoint Administrator 2010"

Again, technically, it's not purely a project management certification, but you do learn a lot about project management if you take these tests.

The MCITP is taken seriously by all companies, as with any Microsoft certification.
