      We, employers , have been claiming that " we are the best assessors of the world universities " We conclude, we decide which university is good ." I am glad to see that we were right . Myself, graduate of Stanford 47 years ago with fantastic jobs all over my life. Plus as an employer I always hired people from top 100 universities . Now I created the only model of university in the world . mguniversity2017 YOu get 10 courses online and get a master degree. MBA in Finance MBA in Marketing MA Economics Courses can be 2 from Harvard, 2 from Stanford, 3 from MIT, 1 from Yale, 1 from Oxford, 1 from University of Tokio . And all free. But please do not think it is easy . These are the hardest schools of the world to graduate . You must work very hard every day . But you have the convinience of the online . Take only one course per semester instead of 3 or 4 . Work harder on one course to be successful . Ask me if you have questions mgozaydin hotmail

        Short :Harvard is no:3 and moron Subra'Swamy aka Spin Swamy claims it has become bad. One can understand how distorted/naive as well as he has become as he gets more senile due to old age.!! Long : A (moron eccentric clown victimcard player Dr Spin Swamy aka Subra'Swamy often plays victim card that Harvard Univ has become bad just becos it chucked/removed him,his courses naturally so becos he used to poke his nose like here in India into all nonsense apart from doing his primary job of responsible teaching.. This moron having chequered career in everything ranging from academics to politics wherever he steps in or rather pokes his nose into like a typical blame game indian immediately finds a lame excuse or tried to damage re tion of everythin under sun just because he had personal animosity. No wonder his moron bhakts also follow similar line..Not surprising these days.. God Save.
