Excellent General Management Program

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

This review is for HBS

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

HBS is a great place to go to business school. Some key areas that distinguish it from other programs:

- Brand Name: when you say you go to HBS, people take note, even if they aren't in the business world. Sounds a bit stuck up to say, but frankly, if you're going to spend $200k on an MBA, that's the reaction you need.

- Case Method: nearly all classes here are case method where you read a case and debate what decisions should be made in class. And you often have the case protagonist in the room because HBS professors write most of the cases. By the time you graduate, you've made thousands of real world decisions and had to defend them to very smart people.

- Sections: HBS is a huge b-school with nearly 1000 students, but in your first year, you're put in a section of ~95 students. This group becomes your family and really helps make a big school feel small. You get the huge alumni network with the small school intimacy. Win win.
