Drexel University - Certificate in Leadership ($199 Online) w/Certificate attached
#1
https://drexel.edu/goodwin/academics/continuing-professional-education/courses/online/leadership/

This online course costs only $199!

Drexel University ranks among top 100 schools in US.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drexel_University


Update with Certificate

 

I paid the $199 and, in a few days, received the login information. The primary instructor is D. Quinn Mills, the Alfred J. Weatherhead Jr. Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School (emeritus).  Overall, this is one of the better online platforms that I have used.

 

Certificate in Leadership, 20-hrs (should be 23-hrs or 2.3 CEUs)

Course: Introduction to Leadership (5-hrs)

Course: Leaders and Work-Life Balance (3-hrs)

Course: Leading and Managing Change (4-hrs)  

Course: Leading Teams (5-hrs)

Course: Body Language for Leaders (3-hrs)*not listed on website as part of program.

 

I did email Drexel many times, and it was not easy to get answers.  They never answer why the 5th course?  Only on the 3rd email did I get a rely on the question of who is this Certificate from?  MineEdge Customer Support did reply and said “The certificate is issued by Drexel and Mindedge.”  Drexel did not answer, nor do they show you what the Certificate looks like on their website. You buy from the Drexel University website, but the feel is of a third-party MOOC.

 

Bottom line: if it's from Drexel is a steal.  If it's just a MOOC, its not and more expensive.  To me it feels like a MOOC.

Wow! that's great! I'd love to take this course soon.
Drexel's Goodwin College didn't answer my email. It looks like they have hard times with COVID-19? so they're kinda unresponsive.

How do you get 23 hours?

5+3+4+5+3=20

It sounds like a promising certificate. Many schools don't respond unless you apply or appear to be very interested. Filling out the request more info page tends to lead to them calling and asking 150 questions.

You are right on the math! Big Grin  The courses were stated as 4 not 5.  Some colleges are adaptive and many are not.

So do the other $50 MOOCs that I have but it's lame and 4x the cost.

For the same money, you can get real instructor feedback (none with Drexel) and a real university official letter also with a real university Certificate in an official cover.

The University of Arkansas certificate still doesn't look like anything that would be worthwhile to put on a resume. At least this one does.

That's the great thing about freedom of choice?  One can buy an expensive 3rd party MOOC Certificate or a real university College of Business Certificate.  It's up to the buyer! Big Grin

If one lives near PA the Drexel MOOC may be attractive.

If one lives near Arkansas the University Certificate may be attractive.


If you do education for life-long learning like I do its no contest.  I will take the quality official university direct Certificate every day!

The only Certificates that I put on my resume is HKS and CBS as both gave me official alumni status.  I do not even put most of my degrees on my resume as they are almost worthless. I would never put any of the 20 MOOCs (MIT, Harvard, Hong Kong, Penn State, etc) on my resume for a job. If one has very little resume than they might.
