No my friend did it and let me be clear, it is not helpful with jobs and interviews. He did it because he could do it for free while working at Harvard, but you don't have access to any of the career opportunities at HBS.

You might as well sign up for trump university

The opportunity is that you can mislead people by putting Harvard in the header of your LinkedIn profile and the only way people know it's extension school is if they scroll all the way down. This is the only practical value I have seen it have for people

Well why is it misleading? Not all harvard means HBS

The bar for getting into the extension school is low. Anyone can get in.

Don't do it. I went to the undergrad and it's mainly for misleading people into thinking you went there for a real degree program.

Being present is HARD because our mind likes to wander. Here are 4 key themes of people who live (and thrive) in the present moment: 1. Focus on your breath 2. Be curious 3. Find your flow 4. Forgive yourself and others
