Certifications in Application Forms [#permalink] New post 13 Sep 2013, 10:03
Hi,

In some of the B School Application forms,it has been asked to state the "certifications" done such as CFA,Level 3,Level 6.

I want to know what is fair game to include in this form ?

Can I include all the technical certifications that I have completed while at work or the certifications has to be related to the business world such as a CFA ?

I have done CC and CL certifications in Toastmasters(Public Speaking and Leadership) and the French DELF B2 certificate.(Foreign Language - Internationalism)

I also completed like 4,5 other certifications but those were related to my oil and gas sector.

Which ones should I include or exclude?

Thanks for your time,
Harsh.

Well, I'd keep it to "Real" certifications and the most impressive ones. Meaning some of your work certifications are probably pretty relevant, but the toastmasters stuff, well it's not like the CFA as far as I understand, and I don't know if it's that relevant. The French certificate for example is nice, but is it relevant? (are you applying to French schools?). If not, it doesn't need to go in.

Your criteria should be the single question: Is this IMPROVING my profile?

If it's not, leave it out.
