Capstone project at the end of the program is by far the best because it helps you put what you learned into action. Lots of studying ahead for anyone who wants to write the PMI exam. If you don't care about that, you'll still learn lots of useful stuff you can pick and choose and apply on the job. Best part is you get 12 units of academic credit.

If you're a seasoned PM, I would pay the $777 per course based on where your own knowledge/exam prep is weakest.
