Hey guys, I maybe got an interesting case for you, I am a developer with an associate degree in engineering in Canada. I make currently 150k, and got other offers in the 120k. My issue is that I am trying to get in higher level of management but having a hard time getting in. I held 2 small director jobs in the past, however due to a bad career choice I had to leave my last director job. At my current company, I am considered as a "senior manager" but in the technical track (principal dev). When I was looking for jobs I was able to obtain 90-100k middle management positions, but this is not really working for me. So now I am looking at education to bolster my CV, I got 2 small childrens, I cannot sit in class 2 days a week. Ideally, I would have done an online MBA in my region, but there is none. I find there is a big stigma in my city about online education, not something you want to brag about, and having a US university on my CV will raise a lot of questions. Other issue, I have an associate degree. Most MBA will not take me. So now I am looking at other options, Boston area is 5 hours away, so I was looking into the Strategic management graduate certificate from Harvard Extension school (I know about the controversies of that school). I can take the courses and do intensive weekends there, this would bring back legitimacy in my interviews I think. What you guys think? I know this is a specific issue, but I'm curious to have opinions of people outside my circle. Thank you!
