Management degree from Harvard Extension or a part time MBA


suppoor

Hello I am looking for some suggestion,

Currently, I am a Network Architect with a PhD working in France. My objective for the next 5 years is to become a team manager (by the end of this period of-course). To that end, I want to obtain a Management Degree while working full time before the job search. I looked at Harvard Extension School managegement degree (HES ALM), le Cnam (MBA - hybrid mode), IAE Sorbonne Business School (international MBA). All these three options are interesting w.r.t cost and flexibility to complete along with my current activity. But only le Cnam MBA has AMBA accredition others are not accredited with internatinally known accredition. Since I will be changing my job within these 5 years i.e, outside of France (Germany and Gulf region), which degree in your opinion would better reflect my management studies and allow me to negotiate a competitive salary package ?
My guess : Since Harvard is internationally known, I think a degree from this university would put me in a better position for negotiation. But since its not an MBA, I am a bit sceptical, because some employers are so attracted towards these three letters.

Note :
+ In my current company, University ranking plays a role in salary offered.
+ Now, I am preparing myself for Project Management certification from PMI - Certified Associate + PRINCE2
+ I plan to pursue HBS Online Core Credentials to prepare for my management degree as I come from very scientific and data science background.

Yes. For this kind of program, if you're looking at Harvard, you should not even worry about accreditation status.

As you asking Sandesh Uppoor, the guy who started the thread? Personally, my experience of the HES masters is outside the management degree, but I had a positive experience of Harvard.

Well, the plan I mentioned in my post is intact. I opted for SCM on edX (from MIT) in place of HBS online for the admission path. 

But I need to mention one observation: I had updated my LinkedIn with HES management degree details (mentioning 2021 - x ), I had got numerous offer requests which was not the case before (FYI, I am not looking for a change as of now.). 

Currently, I have decided to push the HES plan for next year as the pandemic has played its role :( 

All the best ! Sandesh.
