Microsoft recently announced an update to the Microsoft 365 administration certification. Let’s begin with the fact that Microsoft has renamed the certification from “Microsoft 365 Certified: Enterprise Administrator Expert” to “Microsoft 365 Certified: Administrator Expert”. They dropped enterprise from the name.

Previously in order to obtain the Microsoft 365 administration certification, you had to pass both the MS-100 and the MS-101 exams. There is a new exam that has replaced the MS-100 and MS-101 and it is called the Microsoft 365 Administrator, MS-102 exam, which you’ll need to pass to obtain the new Microsoft 365 Certified: Administrator Expert certification, along with a prerequisite exam.
