I’m often asked which graduate program I would recommend to help people break into ICT4D. People are shocked when I answer, “none”. From what I can tell, a graduate degree isn’t worth the 2 years and $100K.
You’d be better off spending both volunteering with a local NGO in the field, getting hands-on skills and networking directly with digital development practitioners.
So what to do if you want to build your skills, and network with practitioners, without leaving your current job? Take a TechChange course!
Specificly, I hilghly recommend the 16-week TechChange Online Diploma Program in Tech for Monitoring and Evaluation for 3 reasons:
- This course will set you apart with high-value skills. Every job has a M&E component, and every organization needs people skilled in M&E Tech.
- This course is very interactive. You will network with peers who will have influence on hiring decisions as organizations you want to work for.
- This course is fun. Yes, really – the TechChange team works hard to make it easy for you to enjoy learning online when its convenient for you.
