I’m considering a new challenge and would like to manage a department but I “only” have a degree in electronics. I’m not sure I’m not sure if this will be enough. I learned most of my qualifications on the job and leadership as an officer in the army. At the moment, I’m leading a team of 4 people.
I had a look at the various training possibilities. I could do course in management and leadership (validated by a Swiss “federal diploma”) or could be admitted to a business school for a EMBA. In both cases, I would be taking the courses on Saturdays for about a year. I’m very motivated and am ready to invest time and money into it but is that is the best way to achieve my ambition ?
What is more important experience or diplomas ?
I would very grateful if some of you would share their experiences and opinion on this.
