One of the big questions I see people asking these days is about graduate studies. People want to know if it’s worth it to get an MBA and if it will help them in their field. I’ve talked before about advanced HR degrees (and the follies of chasing one before you have experience in the field), but the twist is adding certification into the mix. Is it worth it to get your MBA, or would it be acceptable to get your SPHR certification? I know I’m a big proponent of getting certified, but then again it might be better to run the college gauntlet again for the benefits it can provide…
Is there a right answer?
I talk about how both of them could be viable options in the video below. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
Are you looking for an edge in your HR career? Is either of these options (certification or college) a good choice for you?
