How many of you are mentioning IT(or other) professional certifications on your applications? I know Chicago GSB specifically asks for it somewhere on the app, but HBS doesn't.
I haven't included it in my resume either but wondering if it does make sense to put it somewhere on the HBS app. How are others handling this when not specifically asked for on the app? Anyone?
I think it depends on the type of certification. For example, if you passed CFA I and II, I would definitely put that on your resume and mention these achievements in an essay because admissions committee looks at these types of accomplishments as a major commitment to achieve your goal after b-school. However, if you are referring to certifications that are required to do your job (like Six Sigma in manufacturing or series that all traders must to have in order to trade), than I might put it on your resume but wouldn't talk about it in an essay.
