Hi, I'm seeking the wisdom of this forum to help me in finding one which is the better decision to make, an MBA or a specialist leadership certificate. My intent is to spruce up my qualifications in the leadership department. And unfortunately I am on a tight budget of around US$4k in instalments for a whole program. At the moment I am leaning towards either an affordable MBA (like from Jaipur for instance) or a more industry recognised cert, Cornell Uni's Executive Leadership Certificate. The Cornell programme is my preferred choice unless there are other options I opt to take this step as the Executive Development training in my country has a very long queue and it seems to only allow entry by merit and maturity, with I assume a minimum age of 40. I have two years executive management experience thus far so can at the very least be regarded as having an aspiring route towards management, but my age is 32. Looking at the MBA thread has informed me that these are costly investments depending on its awarding body. Any help will be appreciated!
