I'd like to request you some suggestions for studies in HR: I know that a similar request has just been asked, but my situation maybe it's a bit stranger.
I'm an Italian with the equivalent of a master degree in International Relations, plus some specialization corses in development. I have spent the last years of my life in developing countries, working for non profit organizations. As many positions in development work, my duties were many, from project management, finance, and of course human resources, organizational development, etc...
In the next years, for family reasons, I'm considering to move to Canada, and to settle down there.
I'd like then to expand my opportunities for finding suitable jobs there, and I think that HR may be a good option to career shift: it may be useful if I'll continue with development work in the future, and as well it's something in which I feel good at, and I have a good interest.
At this point, I feel that I need to have some formal training in HR, and I'd like to have something that can make a REAL difference, and that will allow me to have a good career in the future.
For this reasons, I'd like to ask your suggestions. I'm considering the online courses at Cornell University, and I'd like to be sure that it's a good option.
Moreover, I'm confused about which course will be the best one.
I'm considering the difference between Human Resources Studies and the Graduate Certificate in Human Resources. There is a huge difference in price, from about 5,000 to 11,000 USD. As I'm bit out from the american university system, I personally don't know if it's something really worthed, and will allow me to find a good job easily in Canada.
Also, I'm wondering if it's worthed to spend that amount of money for a similar course, or if it's not better to invest the money in a different way. But I have to consider that, reallisticaly, I cannot stop working for 1 or 2 years, and I need something that may allow me to study and work at the same time.
What do you think?
