Harvard Business School is the place to go

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

This review is for HBS

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

One can feel incredibly lucky to be accepted to Harvard Business School. The school is reference in terms of state-of-the-art management practices, constantly doing relevant research and staying in contact with leading industry executives, often HBS grads themselves. The Case method is incredibly helpful in facilitating the transition from Junior level positions to Management as it helps students think about the problem as a whole and not focus on specific aspects of the theory being thaught. The faculty is incredible and constantly amazed me with their level of preparation and how well they know both the subject and the students.

My biggest advice to future applicants is to think about the experience that the Case-method and the fixed first-year curriculum creates that is so different than other Business Schools. This is where the key to really enjoying HBS MBA program lies.
