    Kirkland & Ellis LLP
    601 Lexington Avenue (at 53rd Street bet. Lexington and 3rd )
    New York, NY 10022

    There are Certifications (CRM, CRA, IGP, CA, CDIA...) and there are Academic Degrees (Master's, PhD). ( 1 hour, 1 credit)

    What are the differences?

    Why would you want to spend the time and money acquiring them?

    Are there financial, intellectual, and career benefits?

    Come to ARMA Metro NYC Chapter's "Credentials: Certifications vs. Academic Degrees" program to find out from the EXPERTS what the respective advantages are, and make up your own mind.  Senior faculty representatives from three respective schools offering Master's and Doctoral programs will present the case for academic degrees.  One or more of the Chapter's own members will discuss the value of Certifications.

    Following the presentation, breakout groups will be formed, with each speaker mentoring a group.

    This will facilitate face-to-face interaction between speakers and participants.  Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity!
