"Don't believe the hype. This school is not what its hyped up to be. Filled with snobs who think they know it all and students who buy into the b.s. The stuffy attitude the faculty has is antiquated. The students are entitled brats. The administrative staff is rude."

"I did my Master's degree part-time in the evenings through the Harvard University Extension School. It was a wonderful program that allowed me to work full-time and complete my degree at a pace which I could handle. The professors were wonderful, but I learned as much from my classmates who brought so much experience."

"Pros -- very friendly culture, surprisingly open, clearly structured in a way to create lifelong bonds. really good services for not only helping you how to pursue the career you want but also to figure out the career you want. faculty are very friendly and accessible and Boston/Cambridge is a fun town with lots of good food, places to hang out, other academic centers (MIT, BU, Berklee, etc.), and cultural activities. Cons -- workload can be a little overwhelming in the beginning esp given there's no grade nondisclosure. financial aid appears to be a bit less generous than Stanford's. HBS is very married to the case method which is a great pedagogical tool but not necessarily the best one for every skill. the school has since incorporated FIELD courses that involve more practice, but these areas of practice like communication, inspirational leadership, presence, feedback, self awareness, etc. are still definitely second stage to the core classes taught in case method"

"HBS is one of the most elite business schools in the world, and I feel privileged to be a part of the community here. While the cost of attending is very high, the benefits one earns over a lifetime are extraordinary."

"Pros: Global MBA brand, access to exclusive recruiting opportunities, method of instruction helpful to broaden the mind. Cons: Method of instruction not effective for technical courses like finance/ operations, cohort too large to foster community feeling."
