As much as Deloitte is worth the Harvard name.

Deloitte + Harvard Extension would really seal the deal then!

No, it looks like you did an online cert to get a Harvard name on your linkedin

M1 totally agree

I took several courses there to get my pre-reqs for grad school. Good courses, but I don’t put that in my resume.

I’m in a Harvard program and know a few others at my firm who did the same. It is fast paced and time consuming. It definitely puts you in classes (virtual) with higher caliber people (VCs, CEOs, VPs/SVPs, start-ups, and many other Harvard students). That is to say there’s networking opportunity, and yes it is a LinkedIn flex. But it also costs, and provides the skills. So you be the judge. It has only assisted my career goals one way or another.
