The multinational software giant will be recruiting more than 2,000 new apprentices in Scotland.
Microsoft said it would work with its Scottish partners to recruit the Modern Apprentices (MAs) by 2016.
First Minister, Alex Salmond said: "Microsoft is supporting investment in Scottish skills and in its own future in Scotland. Recruiting 2,016 apprentices by 2016 represents a huge endorsement of Scotland's young people from a company with operations in dozens of countries."
Michel Van der Bel, Managing Director, Microsoft UK, added: "The digital technologies industry employs over 100,000 people in Scotland and is expanding fast. At Microsoft we want to help ensure there are skilled people coming into the workplace to secure the future for the sector. These are real jobs for young people in a vibrant, growing and exciting industry, which will help bring economic and employment opportunities."
