I have both an MBA and PMP certification. One component of the PMP certification is the ability to add the letters "PMP" after your name. The MBA is a degree, and I thought that adding "MBA" after my name might seem kind of a reach. Since that time, numerous people who I respect (including some of the faculty at my business school) have added the MBA letters after their name, also as if it were a credential.
On the one hand, Ph.D. is a degree that is also used as a credential. I also have seen people with masters degrees do the same thing, but I've never seen somebody use a BA or a BS as a credential. I have 3 degrees, an MBA, an MA and a BS. Should I use MBA and MA? Neither and stick with the PMP? How much is too much?!?
What is good form here? I am changing jobs in a few weeks, and I am going to need to have new business cards made up (as well as an overall update of my LinkedIn profile), and I want to make sure that I leverage all of my skills and abilities for potential clients researching the company, but I also don't want to do anything "phony."
