Is the SPHR or PHR license necessary to pivot into human capital? I have a MBA from a Top 15 school. Any thoughts?

Depends on what kind of human capital work you wanna do. Based on my exp you don’t need it. Deloitte human capital practice has tons of MBAs with no SPHR or PHR

SPHR and PHR are not licenses, just certifications. SHRM has new tupes of certifications as well. In my experience they do not open doors but some employers in industry do look for them if you are more junior.

In consulting no. In industry it can be a deciding factor between you and someone similar background, but honestly not needed or a huge difference in success within a role

Within the firms, it can help you get staffed faster than someone who doesn’t have one. HC is quite different than HR. In PwC, HR consulting is within HC, but it is a small sub-set.

I'd only consider it if you're going to industry in a Bueiness Partner type role. I've been in HR in industry and I've never had either.

HR work is only one small part of what we do in HC at Deloitte, so it really depends on what you want to do.

It’s not important for consulting in the human capital space. Just industry

You don’t need these licenses if you look at P&O

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?

People say it is a consulting school but majority of campus hires are EU / British citizens. Not sure if Brexit has changed something recently.
