Wonderful Overall Experience

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

This review is for HBS

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

HBS has provided everything I could possibly want in a business school. The faculty is incredible (I've had classes with the former PepsiCo CEO, Danaher CEO, and COO of the Patriots) and the section experience during RC year really brings the size of the campus down. I've developed extraordinary friendships with fellow students from myriad backgrounds and know many of these will be lifelong friendships. The only complaint that I have about the program is that we don't have any weekly day off like many other programs do (Kellogg has Tuesdays off, Anderson gets Friday off). Honestly though, the fact that is my biggest complaint about the program shows how great the program is.

Coming from consulting, I heard a lot of opinions about various business schools. While much of the information I got from my co-workers was accurate, you can't truly understand HBS until you visit a class. The case method is a completely different learning experience and it's intellectually stimulating in a way lecture-based classes aren't. Choosing HBS was the best decision I've ever made and couldn't be happier here.
