Here’s a real answer - hard to build a network and get to know people online. The credential is only part of the value - the network is probably more valuable than the degree, and I’m not sure you get the same opportunities in online only. Online programs also probably have lower standards than classroom, so your network may also be less valuable over the long term (if you think schools do a good job selecting applicants and predicting future potential)

I have been looking at the curriculums for Harvard Business School's Master of Business Administration and Harvard Extension School's Master's in Management. They both have the same requirements, generally speaking, including a field immersion course that serves as a capstone in the Master's in Management, which is fairly new. If I am not able to gain admission to Harvard Business School, but wanted a similar educational experience to become a consultant, should I attend Harvard Extension?
