I'm considering the Post doc certificate at Grenoble: http://www.aacsb.edu/bridgetobusiness/Grenoble.asp The program is two years and it costs 15K. The cost seems to be right as my employer can cover it. My question is how realistic would be to land a tenure track position at a AACSB school with this certificate? I find that salaries at AACSB accredited research institutions are a lot higher than the typical 4 year state school without accreditation. Most offers that I get are in the order of 50 to 70K at non AACSB accredited schools but the AACSB website claims that starting salaries at AACSB institutions are in the 100K range. Has anyone done this certificate and being able to land a tenure track job? I have talked to few that were able to land part time or non tenure positions with similar certificates so I wonder if this is just another way to get your money and not a real deal. AACSB claims that graduates of these certificates would be as qualified as PhD holders from AACSB schools but it might be just a selling pitch.
