You can go for CAPM . Later you can do PMP after you have experience. If Scrum master suits to your current work, you can go for it.
My recommendation is to read and to understand the certification handbooks first. On the other side, why do you think about project management? With your master you should take a look to CMU SEI certifications. On the other side, before earn a certification, you have to get work experience. The certification will not give value to you without work experience in the field.
I agree with Sergio. The core objective of PMP certification is demonstrate your expertise and experience in PM body of knowledge. The only way you could gain expertise is through work experience. Considering your current scenario, i would recommend to read and understand the certification book of knowledge. After gaining requisite work experience one can go for PMP.
You can go for CAPM, which will give you foundation level information on what PMI expects and also train you on PMI way of testing.
Hi Dahinesh ,
In my opinion you should go for CAPM.It will give you theoretical knowledge of project management working which you can implement into your work.
Moreover ,you can go forward with PMP once you get required experience.
As far as Scrum is concerned it is also good to have but it is more related with agile working.If your current organization is following it then you can opt this certification also.
If you believe you want to be in the field of PM, then go for CAPM - It basically opens the door for you to project management until such a time you acquire the required working hours / months then you can do your PMP
CAPM will help you to gain knowledge about Project management and at the same time you will be distinguished among others.
in addition to what Rami and Pankaj have mentioned i would suggest to look for option where you can gain the needed experience and where you could apply your knowledge you have obtained while your master studys and may be doing CAPM; than you will develop this knwoledge in combination with real life expereince and this could be the base ground for your PMP certifcation and a careere as a professionell PM.
I would suggest to become a PMI member if you are not already and look for careere development opportunitys there.
For isntance they offer various volunteer opportunitys which are a good option for obtaining project expereince in several roles.
Best of luck,
