3. Project Management Professional

PMP is a great credential for candidates looking to move from a technical to a managerial track, according to Global Knowledge. Earning and maintaining the PMP demonstrates a solid level of experience and competency in effectively managing projects and project teams.

The PMP exam tests five areas relating to a project's life cycle, and is not specialized to any particular industry, Global Knowledge said. Requirements include a four-year degree and at least three years of project management experience, with 4,500 hours leading projects and 35 hours of project management education.

This certification is held by 292 of the Global Knowledge survey respondents, and offers an average annual salary of $105,415, making it the sixth highest-paid certification with at least 150 respondents.
