Offensive Harassment from Kathy Harvey, Oxford Executive MBA

Post Sun May 14, 2017 3:35 am
This is to review my experience at the Executive MBA program at Said Business School.

First of all, I must say that the teaching was below par, and the curriculum content was outdated and completely theoretical with no practicality. Professors skipped some of the syllabus content, and the classes were not useful or engaging, and again with an all-abstract content and no practical implementation. The cohort I studied in (EMBA 10) was not good and badly selected, and some of them did not even speak English properly. Some of the students did not do the assignments themselves and cheated by hiring companies to write it for them. It is a poorly-executed, watered-down MBA program with no substantial value-addition, and absolutely not worth the £75000 price tag it asks for.

I also faced offensive harassment and bullying from the course director called Kathy Harvey (Levy), that was perhaps because of religious reasons, racial profiling and/or her own evident mental problems. This travesty of a manager raised her voice at me one time and repeatedly harassed me with remarks, which caused me much distress and emotional discomfort. No wonder she received a warning for her harassment, and belongs to this harassing and incompetent business school, led by an equally-incompetent and harassing person called Peter Tufano (who got fired from Harvard Business School), who did nothing to address the harassment issues and Harvey continues her harassment of students.

If you're looking for a high quality and useful business education and a welcoming culture without racism, bullying and harassment, don't go to this disrespectful, degree mill of a school.

Final Note: Please bear in mind that this school pays publications like The Economist and Financial Times "under the table" so they position the school in the top 10 rankings of executive MBA programs. Don't believe the rankings because it is all bogus.

And despite this, under Tufano's leadership, the school fell from the top 10 to no. 33 in the world according to the latest Financial Times MBA rankings in 2017, and no. 83 by The Economist. This business school is an incompetent degree-mill, which I don't recommend to anyone.
