As an Ashridge alumnus, I'm grandfathered into Hult's alumni community. Readers of the blog may know that I've been critical of the school's assertive marketing tactics and lack of a traditional academic faculty. That said, the school certainly has a highly impressive offer for alumni. I've put below part of an email I got today outlining the benefits. The option to talk a free elective is very impressive, but seats are subject to availability. Looking at the booked-out Digital Transformation course at Ashridge this summer, for example, I see that 42 alumni are registered (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ashridge-summer-program-2-innovation-and-digital-disruption-tickets-22527805272) So, while limits are to be expected 42 seats seems very generous.

PS Laurie's comment below is spot on. Who would have thought it? There was no reason to write a summary post, since the articles listed on my profile page give a comprehensive summary of my approach. And, of course, 9000 is the best possible number to stop at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7O5JY4uh-I
