To migrate an admin Box Business / Enterprise accounts to Office365 Sharepoint sites, you need to create one-way sync pairs like this:

Box Business (admin@acme.com)/files_for_site_1 -> Office365 Sharepoint (admin@acme.com)/Site/Document Library
Box Business (alice@acme.com)/files_for_site_2  -> Office365 Sharepoint (admin@acme.com)/Site/Document Library
...

The above will create a one-way sync of each Box account with Office365 Sharepoint. The data will be migrated, and it will also be kept in sync—allowing you seamless transition.
