I already have a PMP , and now am looking to go further , i have a choice of going on a masters degree in Project Management, and on the other hand am realy intrested in PMI-PBA , any advice please ? Saving Changes...
I am always surprised with questions like this.
You are comparing a full academic master degree that will typically require close to 16 courses over 18 months, if not more --- with a professional certification that you can possibly self-study for and achieve in a few weeks.
From my perspective - as a manager - with all else being equal - I will take the masters degree over the PBA, ACP, and PMP all combined. What I am saying - for me the masters degree (of course from a reputable university and not a shop) is than PMP + PBA + ACP.
this is an apples-to-oranges comparison as Mounir has indicated.
Pursuing a graduate, doctoral or post-doctoral degree is a strategic calling more than a tactic.
Bring the decision back to what your objective is - if it is to tactically improve your marketability, then experience + a focused, appropriate certification might be a better bet.
Very few employers are asking for advanced degrees in PM so unless you have a passion for a particular aspect of PM or are interested in pursuing a career in research & academia, I don't know that this will be of as much near term value.
