In consideration of the global economic trends, neither of the two programs is your optimal choice.
First, you should eliminate your plan to work as a teacher in a middle school in Shenzhen. I have read the report, and I believe (although ‘politically incorrect’) that it is a significant intellectual waste to work there irrespective of the high salary offered.
You should give up the TESOL program, which focuses on ESL teaching methodologies. The relevant skills are not what the global economies (US and China alike) really need.
You may choose the Educational Communication program presented by Columbia if you have no better choice. This program provides the learning opportunities related to quantitative skills, media technologies, as well as media analysis, which are quite useful in this Big Data age.
I still recommend you to choose a more technology-focused program.
