My company is paying for me to complete the online Masters program in Analytics at Georgia Tech. It is very reasonably priced (less than $10K for the whole degree, in my case spread out over 3 years). I’m incredibly thankful!

PhD, they can keep the corporate trainings 😁

Short of that, I'd be up for some project management courses and cloud architecture prep & certs. Project management because it's often useful, even if you don't worship scrum etc. Cloud because it's highly relevant, though would want the real certs, not the useless single weekend ones.

A paid Coursera subscription coupled with an incentive to use it would also be cool. Incentive because having skin in the game matters for completion, and $50/mo is too often not enough (see abysmal completion rates on cheap MOOCs vs near 100% completion rates on $1k night school classes)
