Anyone take courses/get a degree from Harvard Extension School? Experience? Was it worth it? Are you also able to build a network? Realize it’s not like an MBA, but that doesn’t fit my life now .

Waste of money

It’s not about prestige for me, two things I’m looking for are (1) learning the subject matter and (2) networking for future business partners. I’d like to leave consulting one day and start a business. Was curious if any who went there found it possible to network.

I could also consider an EMBA at Wharton (I have enough experience and it’s close to home). I wouldn’t consider a lesser ranked program if I was spending that much for an MBA.

the second you run into someone who actually went to Harvard they will think less of you for it. It was a frequent topic of discussion among my class. It just shows you wasted money on something that’s neither useful nor valuable

No, I work for Deloitte

It's misleading when they put it on Linkedin and the short description says Harvard, then you look into the profile and it's Harvard extension instead

^ and it’s some 6 week extension program

Since you mentioned emba from Wharton, I just graduated from it and we have a few ACN folks. It’s a very good program and you do earn actual MBA degree, not watered down like most others

If I stay in Europe I would lose on brand name and salary but I’ll be able to join a deal team.
