List these pseudo-courses on my resume - next to my fancy real degrees?

Looking to get up-and-out of my current private-sector scientist position, I've been rewriting my resume to target more senior science jobs with more of a management or strategic character to them. Obviously I've been playing up every relevant aspect of my experience on my submissions, but what I don't have is an MBA. Some of my competitors for these jobs probably do - in addition to their science PhD. I've sort-of taken a few business courses* over the years, though. Better than nothing? Should I list them on my resume? How to word it? [more inside]

side business + 9to5 for the man = difficult resume situation

I am looking for a new job and would like to make a slight career change. Right now, I have a full time job and a side business.

ASP or ColdFusion job posting tools

Does anyone have a recommendation for a job posting/administration application that uses either ASP or ColdFusion? I'm looking to implement something that will allow users to search jobs and submit their resume and will allow the HR department to post, edit, and delete jobs.
