Dear Colleagues,

In the time when certifications are gaining relevance, I would like to seek your suggestions whether it would be better to have an HR certification or Masters degree. This may be a frequently asked question nowadays but I am hoping for some good advice on this platform.

Thanking in advance.

Dear Moily,
If you want a thorough education that would be acceptable by any employer, you could go for a Masters from a recognized university. Certifications can be done as a back-up or as an added value for up-skilling.

I am afraid to say that many employers (at least internationally) are looking for certified HR professionals by specifically mentioning it in their ads. I am too wondering what happened to the degrees that people have sans the certification.
