Is that the one that has an app? I think it’s not accredited. Brand name and network are what matters most in MBAs in my experience

Did you mean Quantic? I know a couple Ivy/Oxbridge people who have done it but neither have had very traditional careers. One was an engineer turned life coach and the other dropped out of their PhD program and is teaching others research methodology now. Seems like it does a good job of the learning about business part but no one knows the real long term outcomes.

Yes, Quantic. Thank you for the correction and the information. My career is anything but traditional, but I’m not interested in self-employment at this time.

What is your specific goal? Improve business knowledge? Job placement?

It might make sense to pursue some online training to build knowledge in foundational technology topics (might even be available through your firm) I’d just be careful spending big $ on a part time MBA that may have worse exits than your current gig

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
