Can someone give me a solution for this problem? It's pretty unique as it seems that none of my other friends who are taking this course have a problem around logging into PowerBI Service. I don't have a corporate email id and am not able to do all the stuff that I'm required to.

I'm taking Power BI course, I have MS Office 365 & a Microsoft account, but still can't access PowerBi Service because it asks for Work or student email no way around.

It's a bit confusing regarding the email address. To create my address, I just used my regular address and appended it with ".onmicrosoft.com". Example: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regarding the Office 365 trial, even though I have 365 I signed up for the trial just to get my new email account. Don't try and make too much sense out of it.

Steve, you're the best, I finally was able to sign in with a mumbo jumbo email that Microsoft system understood. Again, thanks so much.

Believe me as a formal student, I go thru my syllabus or any other instructions with a comb & there isn't any help how to sign in for Power BI with a personal email address because I'm unemployed therefore, no business email; I'm not a student therefore, no university email.
Anyway, thanks for trying to help.

Have you solved your problem? If not, look at Steve reply to my question because I have the same situation no business email nor student email.
I hope this help.
