Comments on: Harvard University Online Classes and Programs Thu, 14 Aug 2008 03:34:36 +0000 hourly 1 By: Joy Fri, 04 Jul 2008 16:36:56 +0000 Gaj,

In my opinion, any program offered by the Harvard Extension School is a cut-above. The courses are taught by Harvard University faculty, so there is no question about the quality. The management program also uses specialized study and case analysis which will ensure that what you learn in the classroom you will be able to apply in real-world situations. Your Harvard ID card will also give you a few perks such as access to the Harvard University library. When you graduate, you will also have all the benefits of the alumni program at your disposal including access to career services assistance. If I were looking for a masters in Management, I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Just my two cents (for whatever that’s worth)! 🙂

I have been evaluating the HES masters degree in Management. What do you think about this program in terms on quality and reputation?


By: Joy Mon, 30 Jun 2008 14:01:26 +0000 Hi Stephen,

I just sent you an email with a list of the environment courses Harvard Extension School is offering Spring 2009. The tuition is PER COURSE (not per credit hour) and ranges from $800 to $1,725 depending on whether you are taking the course as undergrad credit or graduate credit.

Since you are interested in the Spring term, be sure to register between December 8 and February 1. If you run into any problems, Harvard’s Extension School website has a help screen to give you a hand.

If you aren’t sure what to expect, check out the informational video Harvard Extension School has posted on their website (the link is in the Harvard post above).

If you are interested in programming and system design, I have compiled a list of 23 colleges offering online bachelor degrees in Computer Science. If you are looking for a master’s program, what degree might you be interested in pursuing? Boston University offers a Master of Science in Computer Information Systems (in a variety of concentrations).

Hope that helps!

By: Joy Mon, 07 Apr 2008 14:36:06 +0000 Ajileye,

I wasn’t sure from your comment if that meant you wanted to take the Oracle class Harvard’s Extension School offers, or if you were interested in pursuing a degree in database administration. If you would like to take Harvard’s class, visit the Harvard University Extension website.

If you are interested in a database administration degree or certificate, there are several options available to you.

1. Rasmussen College offers a degree in DB Administration.

2. Northeastern offers a certificate in DB Administration as well as computer-related degrees.

3. Boston University offers a Master of Science in Computer Info Systems – DB Administration.

These are just a few of the programs available. If you provide more specific information about your desired course of study, I might be able to tell you about a few more programs. Keep in mind, there are TONS of Computer Information Systems/IT degrees that will cover database administration in their required course of study. Also, I have compiled a list of 23 colleges offering online degrees in Computer Science.

There are two Ivy League schools offering the online programs you are seeking, Columbia University and Cornell University. Harvard might work for you…

Harvard University:
At this time, Harvard University does not offer a complete online program in Business Administration. However, through their Extension school, they do offer 4 of the required 5 courses for a Certificate in Management. According to their course-list, a course in the “Communication in Business” field is the only course not available via the internet at this time. It might be worth it to check directly with the school and see if they would allow you to take a similar course at another school. Given that there are only 5 courses in the certificate program, this might not be possible. Here is the direct link: Harvard University Extension School

Columbia University:
Another Ivy League University, Columbia University, offers several complete graduate certificates online, one you may be interested in is Business and Technology.

Here’s a link to my post discussing Columbia’s online programs:
Columbia University now offers overs 30 online degrees.

Columbia University Online Certificate Programs.
Columbia University Online Degrees (Engineering School)

Cornell University:
Cornell, another Ivy League school, offers 19 online certificate programs, many of them through the Johnson Graduate School of Management.

You can download a free PDF discussing their online certificates here: Cornell University.

PS: If you would really prefer an MBA program, visit my MBA category posts… there are a couple dozen that might help you out: 59 AACSB schools offering online Master’s programs.

Hope that helps!

By: Faiçal Bouzid Thu, 31 Jan 2008 18:23:23 +0000 I’m a engineer. I had a bachelor in chemical engineering from University of Montreal in Quebec, Canada, and a Certificate in project management from McGill University of Montreal.

I’m looking for an on-line certificate or graduate program in Business Administration given by Havar? Is a such program is available? If so, can you please provide me with more information on it?

Best regards

By: Richard Thu, 03 Jan 2008 23:53:44 +0000 I can second Bob’s assessment.

I’m currently pursuing an ALB at Harvard Extension School and the program is ROUGH. I have to really dedicate myself to staying on top of the reading and coursework or I pay for it with my grades.

It’s probably the best kept secret in undergraduate education, though.

You can read more about my experiences at my own blog:

By: Bob D Thu, 06 Dec 2007 17:48:03 +0000 I am a student at Harvard Extension School. I am persuing a MS in Information Technology. Don’t let the “online” fool you. The classes and homework are hard. I have an MBA from NYU and let me tell you, the homework and assignments at the Extension School far more challenging than anything I had in my previous degree programs. I usually average 10-20 hours a week on homework (and that’s for 1 class) On the side note, I have never learned more. I have been in the IT field for 20 years and the classes in the MS-IT program teach you whats used in the workforce (i.e. XML, Java Distributed Programming, Oracle DBA). I highly recommend the program.

By: Joy Fri, 23 Nov 2007 00:03:49 +0000 Hi James,

At this time, Harvard’s extension school does not offer a complete bachelor’s degree online… a total of 16 hours must be completed on campus. According to Harvard’s website, “If you live far away or are an international student, you may complete the 16-credit residency requirement by completing two eight-week summer sessions through the Harvard Summer School (perhaps one session at the beginning of your studies and one at the end).” The rest of the program may be completed online. For more specific information about the programs available and the application process, visit the Harvard University Distance Education website.
