Need few inputs pertaining to Ph.D and certification. I am MBA in Human Resources, having 4 years of experience in HR field, recently I appeared for Ph.D enterance test and was qualified. This is part time program and I am a bit confused if Ph.D in HR would be a better option or getting certified from SHRM or CLC or any other reputed institution.
Request your kind inputs

Dear Murtuza It all depends upon what you want to do in the long-term. If you want to get into academia then PhD would be very useful. But if you want to work in the industry then not so useful.

Whereas certifications are for specific roles . They help you to qualify for them , such as a HR Business Partner, globally.

Please plan each step towards the direction you wish to grow. Doctoral programs are the ultimate ones. It gives you the highest level exposure to every issue. The duration builds on your experience along with your job.
