Here is my deal, I have 14 grad credits in finance and can take a 4 credit class at Trident to hit 18. For the past 5 years I have managed 50+ employees (national responsiblility) with responsibility for ~$400M in service contract revenue. I work closely with finance but not in finance. I would like to add that to my CV as an option to teach. Here is my thought - I can take the additional course but I will not have anything on my CV that says "finance" in the education section. To say I work in finance is a stretch. I was thinking of taking the extra class then something like one of these programs to show a solid finance bit in the education section: Online Professional Certificate in Corporate Finance Training Course Financial Management - Online Certificate Program | eCornell Certificate Program in Finance — UC Berkeley Extension Executive Certificate in Global Finance | Thunderbird Online FSU Certificate in Financial Planning | Program Overview These range from under $2K to about $5K or so. What do you think? Does that sound like a good plan? Oh, I was kind of promoted and now I am responsible to over 125 people spanning 4 groups (still national responsability) so a deeper understanding and review of the foundations can never hurt so these certificates will be duel purpose.
