NYU appears to be phasing-out their old certificate program and are now focusing on a Diploma program: https://www.sps.nyu.edu/professional-pathways.html The programs are competitive with limited seats available per class, requiring an essay, a resume, references, and most programs requiring a prior degree, so many of the programs appear to be targeted at experienced/mid-career professionals. Some courses are blended requiring in-person attendance. What I'm curious to gauge from you all is, what value do you see these programs having for people? Real? Imagined? Name recognition/resume-padding?
