What are your thoughts on the value of a Harvard Extension School degree vs. a standard online MBA from a reputable public university? I feel like the Harvard name carries a lot of value....
Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
Assuming from a top University, how well regarded is a masters in business analytics from a recruiting standpoint? Considering getting one over an MBA.
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
Im a M at a Big 4 firm working M&A strategy. 10+ YOE, no MBA. I got here with an engineering degree. 200k+ TC. I’m considering a MBA, in fact, I got accepted to a top 20 school and will start part time in just over a month. Is it necessary at this point? Im already doing the work and learning what I need on the job. Do I need to put the stamp on it and make it official?

I really want to do an MBA, but recently lost a family member, and now have an elderly dependent to take care of. All my target schools will require me to move country. I have 3-4 YoE - probably too little for an EMBA, and not keen on any of the digital programs given they are not of the same standing. Anybody managed to do an MBA with dependents and have recommendations on how to get around this situation?
Hi prospective MBA applicants! I’m looking to expand my admissions consulting business, something I’ve been doing informally for a while.

Thoughts on the PMP?
For current management consultants pursuing a full time 1 Year MBA program, what are your post-MBA plans? Why are you pursuing a 1 Year program? Do you want to pivot out of consulting?
How necessary is an extracurricular for MBA apps? I work a ton of hours and don’t have a lot of time or interest in any activity that I could reasonably put on an app. I spend the little free time I have on activities I enjoy (spending time with SO and friends, working out, Netflix, etc). Would it be really bad if I had nothing in that section on my app beyond college extracurriculars? Or should I force some activity? I have enough time before I apply to make it look legit to adcoms.
For those consultants out there ... have you found it valuable to have a formal certification for Digital Transformation Change mgmt? What do you feel is the most valuable/marketable certification?

If you plan to leave your firm and your manager asks you why you're leaving, what do you say? I have a legitimate non-bridge-burning reason unrelated to comp or simply "big tech is better" reason. I have asked for more client facing exposure and haven't gotten it cause weird reasons, which was the factor that caused me to look for exits in the first place. But I'm not sure if I should bring this up. Should I just be vague and say "looking for a new chapter"?
