I am an Oracle Applications professional currently working as a team
lead with a company in California. Now I am looking forward to expanding my
profile into project management. To achieve this, I am looking for any internationally recognized project management certifications on ERP projects so that I may become a certified ERP project manager. Do you know of any good certification programs offered by Oracle OR any other well-recgonized acadameic or professional institute?
There are a number of great publications and sites on the WEB, which deal with planning your ERP project. (I like TechRepublic's IT Consultant area) Of course, you could also always get an MBA, specializing in IT...
If you are looking at PROJECT MANAGER Master's Certificates, which some
universities are now offering, I'd keep in mind that some schools have
better credentials than others... Check their overall ranking for their MBA
programs. There are a few schools which do excellent online programs, but
DO check. I've seen some schools which advertise programs for which they
are not yet accredited.
