What advice do you have for Harvard HES students, now that you have graduated?
Do your best to use all the resources that are made available to you! Also reach out to as many of your fellow students as possible. Much of what makes HES special is found in what you can learn from both the coursework and your passionate classmates from all over the world.

In what ways has your Harvard Extension degree impacted your career?
I initially applied for the ALM program at HES out of a passion for this institution and an enjoyment of the challenging scholarship found here. However, I happily watched my career accelerate during my time at Harvard, thanks largely in part to the skills I gained during my graduate work. Those looking earn further professional confidence, responsibilities, and earning potential should look to HES.
