Hello,

I am thinking of majoring in database. One university program is offering a curriculum that mostly requires certifications. Here is my question: Is a curriculum based mostly in certifications equal to taking a normal curriculum in database?


I don't want to waste money and time on something that is going to get me anywhere or that will require extra education to do something with.

Thanks.

What certifications and what university program? You have to look at the curriculum and the university's credibility. Employers like to know you can pass certification tests. Experience and degrees are important too, but it never hurts to have all 3!

No.

A degree is theoretical knowledge. A cert is practical knowledge. A degree composed of certs is a scam.
