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. I’m wondering if anyone has done this? Or recommends a program they hear good things about? Preferably online so we don’t have to move! TIA!

Anyone have taken certificate courses from Harvard Extension School? Are they worth the ‘Harvard’ name?

All- I have some friends who work at Bain and the more I hear about the place, the more I want to eventually work there. The issue is that my credentials aren’t the best. I will have an MBA from a T15 college in about 2 years time, I have 6 years of experience in analytics consulting, mostly at small firms and startups. I guess I wanted to ask the golden question, do I really have a chance at getting into Bain? If so, how should I plan this out?
