Who are the Highest Paid Microsoft Certified Professionals?
If you have BizTalk expertise and the certification to match it, is your salary in the six-figure range? Well, it's what the average MCTS: BizTalk title holders said they made on average last year.
Only two other certifications exceeded the six-figure ceiling: MCITP: BI Developer and MCPD. You can check out details in our brand new MCP-specific salary survey for 2011, now online here.
So, you might be thinking, "What about about those high-level certifications, like the Microsoft Certified Master or the Microsoft Certified Architect?" There's an easy answer for that: We didn't get enough data points to get good results on those certifications. There isn't a large population of them who subscribe to the MCPmag.com mailing lists, so when we do a random select of the list, we're likely going to snag very few MCMs and MCAs, let alone ones who will respond and fill out the survey.
It does beg the question: Who among you are regular readers of MCPmag.com and have an MCM or MCA title? (I suspect I won't see too many hands raised on this one.) A better question might be: Who among you have legitimate, mapped out plans to achieve those titles? Anyone?
