Certification, MBA, or just work?
BLUF: Should I pursue further education or certification to further my career?
I recently completed my BSB/M degree and am looking at further expanding my learning. Many of the positions I have been looking at ask for either a MBA or some form of APICS certification if not both as a "nice to have".
Should I pursue either of these or look at more generic postings where I can go into a company and then grow organically with that company?
I have been with the same company in Aerospace for more than 11 years now. I started out in the warehouse and have moved up as far as I can without moving out of state (something I cannot do for the next 5 years). During this time I earned my degree and currently work in a materials management position within traffic and logistic. I have a Six Sigma greenbelt and have worked as a PM on several projects. I am looking to get into management or a role where that is a possibility for me in the near future.
