Has anyone taken one of those online executive courses, like the Harvard Extension School offers? Looking to use my $5k of tuition reimbursement and already have an MBA. Worth it? Best programs?

Yep, I just finished my masters in management with Harvard extension. Totally worth it - best in class professors.

@Slalom very appreciated. I'll take a look at how much of a community these schools aim to make out of it. Cost isn't a factor since it's company-paid, but professors and network seem to be the key. This'll help my search a bunch 👍🏽👍🏽

I'm in banking/tech strategy btw, there aren't any certifications that would be relevant... so I'm looking at strategy, innovation, design thinking, and leadership courses.

Online MSc, MBA ..... Western Governors University, Arizona State University,.... there's more those are just two affordable ones. I personally am doing my MSc through WGU part time.

Yeah, I already have my MBA... definitely not going for another full degree, just a certificate at most. Good luck though!
