I get an insane amount of people pinging me on linked in to get PMP and agile certifications. I've been on the fence about getting one, they are expensive and time consuming--expire so you have to pay for them again, and they aren't industry specific. I know alot of PMs now just through agency turnover at current and previous job, none had PMP and one had Agile/scrum certification. Not a necessity.

Anyone tried to pursue a MBA while working full time and have a toddler? I work in a dying industry and want to jump to tech companies but I don’t know any coding.

Looking for some MBA advice. Went to Indiana U and had mediocre GPA due to mental health struggles. Got medicated and saw a therapist and got a 4.0 my last semester. But still ended with 3.2 gpa. I am a good standardized test taker and am confident I can do well on GRE/GMAT. Given my poor undergrad GPA, am I a non-starter for an M7 MBA? Looking to improve myself as an applicant over the next year or so by seeking out leadership opps within and outside the firm. Any advice is appreciated!
