Non-PhD Doctorate at Harvard vs. MBA at pseudo-M7 like Cornell or Duke?

Not sure what sounds more absurd, non-phd doctorate or psuedo-m7

I think so. And the specialized knowledge vs the generalized degree would help you in the long run, I think. You’ll obviously need to work on pieces and network regardless of which path you choose, but I think the Harvard degree is closer to your goals.

@BC1 Yeah I'm leaning towards Harvard, the brand is universal... I'd have to do more leg work to make/build connections in EdT but I'm thinking that it'll have more substantial impact in the long run as I specialize.

If you’re sure on Ed, do the PhD imo. If you’re leaning Ed but want the flexibility to try other things, do the mba.

Looks like the EdLD takes pieces from the Ed school, Kennedy school, and HBS. I think it’ll give you the skills you’ll need - you’ll just need to build the network for your goal.

Better question: Full time 3 year Ed.L.D. @ Harvard (funded) vs. full time MBA at Cornell or Duke (partial funding)

Interesting choice. I reckon an MBA will open way more doors for you than the Ed PHD; however, really depends on your short and long term goals

What are you most interested in getting out of an advanced degree?

EdTech

If it’s EdTech I’d imagine you can do more with I’d think the MBA. Maybe just make sure the MBA program has some sort of focus on education and tech?

Think EdPhD for Ed tech actually
