I have been looking at the curriculums for Harvard Business School's Master of Business Administration and Harvard Extension School's ALM in Management. They both have the same requirements (generally speaking) including a capstone course that serves as a field immersion course with the Master's in Management, which is fairly new. If I am not able to gain admission to Harvard Business School, but wanted a similar educational experience to become a consultant, should I attend Harvard Extension?

Does a masters from Harvard Extension School come with the same perks, open the same doors as regular Harvard? I’m guessing there’s always going to be a difference but seems like a good deal (it’s cheaper than some state schools) with a semi-prestigious datapoint to add to the resume? Would love to hear from folks who’ve done it.

Hello y'all!
Need some advice in terms of higher education.
I have 1 year of work ex in ZS-India as a Business Operations Associate & had high hopes of pursuing graduate degree from US/Europe. But due to Pandemic, all the hopes and wishes are pushed back indefinitely.
I was planning on completing some certifications meanwhile and came across Harvard Extension School Certificates. It'd cost me around $12K for a certification.
Would it be worth its cost when it comes to job market?
Thank you!😊

My partner is looking into going back to school for a masters in sustainability management. He is looking at a program through the Harvard Extension School Sustainability Management certificate.
