The resources available to its students are unparalleled: with 800+ cases, world-renowned professors and bright, ambitious fellow students are set up for a great career. Additionally, the HBS focus on developing its students emotional intelligence is great, given their ambition of educating world-changing leaders.

Incredibly impressed with what I've seen so far - blown away by the humility, authenticity and intelligence of both my classmates and professors. Incredibly impressed with what I've seen so far - blown away by the humility, authenticity and intelligence of both my classmates and professors.

The access that an HBS MBA provides is unparalleled. I have already been welcomed by the alumni network prior to even beginning formal coursework.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Harvard Business School is a premier institution with world-renowned faculty and professors, beautiful and maintained facilities, and a curriculum that keeps students engaged and enriched. The best part about HBS is the network of current students and alum. HBS truly creates an environment where you can be the best version of yourself, constantly pushing you to challenge your own ideas and ideals in the context of an international marketplace. The only con to the program is its expense. For a student with a non-traditional background, or one who is not sponsored, you can leave HBS with almost $150,000 in loans. This debt can potentially stay with a student for many years and/or affect a student's career choice.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

My program well prepares law students for the legal profession, and there are many career opportunities available despite the dearth of employment in the legal field nationwide. There are also fantastic networking opportunities. Furthermore, the JD/MBA program allows students to receive both degrees in only four total years of school (as opposed to five). However, the program is prohibitively expensive at about $350,000 total. Additionally, the high caliber of students, many of whom overachieved in their previous careers and/or colleges, creates a competitive environment. This environment motivates many students, but it can be counterproductive and destructive to the social fabric of the class once it reaches a certain threshold.

The HBS program adds enormous value to your perspective on national and international business and provides access to an amazing network of people all over the world. The cost of the program, however, is very expensive but the Harvard community does everything they can to help finance your education.
