People say a GIS certificate is just that and that it doesn't matter where you get it, so why is there such a huge discrepancy in the schools that offer them?
UC Riverside - Supposedly very reputable - 24 units - $4,600
USC - Obviously reputable - 16 units - $20,000+
Cal State LA - Just a run-of-the-mill program it seems - 12 units - Price unknown, probably $2,000
So if it's just a "Certificate" why does the USC program even exist, at that price no less?
Where would you get your certificate?
