Marketability of Columbia Southern vs. e-Cornell’s Certificates in Human Resource Management? In a post a few days ago, I asked about a Law School for HR. The advice given was good and made me think. At this phase, I’m information shopping and considering what I can do for a career change from teaching to HR Management. I have a Masters Degree in Education but am burnt out on teaching kids in a public school. One thing I’m wondering is about 2 programs that were mentioned. One was Columbia Southern’s programs in Certified Management Employment and Certified Human Resource Manager. The other was e-Cornell’s certificate program in HR Management (which has an Employment Law component). Columbia Southern’s program are $500 each, Cornell’s is $5000! Granted, Cornell is Ivy League, but will it make THAT much difference in acceptability in the job market? It is after all, a certificate, not a degree. Please give me some input. Thanks!
