Hello everybody..

Being a German in a large company that has no recommendations as to which certificate to obtain, I am left wondering, which one is best regarded in the business community?

While I am leaning towards the Cambridge BEC Higher, it is "merely" a C1 in the European reference frame, whereas the Cambridge CPE would be a C2, but without immediate connection to business. Is the difficulty trade-off worth the "specialization"?

What other certificates are well-regarded or better regarded in the business community (esp. large corporations)?

I acknowledge that certificates mostly benefit those who issue them, but being offered to "check off" the English language off the to-do-list, I would give it a shot.

Thanks in advance for any input!
