WHAT'S HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL CORE PROGRAM ONLINE ALL ABOUT?

HURON IS THE ONLY ONTARIO UNIVERSITY TO COLLABORATE WITH HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL ONLINE

Harvard Business School Online (Harvard) provides students from all backgrounds with a chance to gain the fundamentals of business thinking. The online Credential of Readiness (CORe) program will enable Huron students to contribute to business discussions and decision-making, whether you’re looking to advance your career, considering graduate school, or exploring new career paths. 

Like Huron, Harvard is driven by interactive peer-to-peer engagement and committed to student success. Harvard has designed a virtual learning environment where Huron students can collaborate with other students and a diverse group of professionals from all over the world. 

CORe was developed by Harvard faculty members to instill a deep understanding of essential business concepts and problem-solving skills. Mastering the three courses—Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting—will give you fluency you need to succeed in today’s workplace. 
 

Harvard Business School Online

 

Business Analytics introduce quantitative methods used to analyze data and make better management decisions.  Students will hone an understanding of key concepts, managerial judgment, and be confident applying course concepts to real business problems.  Video

Economics for Managers dives into fundamental economic principles like supply and demand, cost, markets, competition, and differentiation.  Students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to craft successful business strategy.  Video

Financial Accounting will teach the fundamentals of financial accounting.  Starting with the basics of recording transactions as journal entries and posting time to T accounts, students will learn how to prepare a balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement. Video

Final tests need to be scheduled by the student at their nearest Pearson Vue testing centre.

Students are eligible to register for one of the two formats available:

Extended CORe: 17 weeks | 8-10 hours wkly
Standard CORe: 12 weeks | 12-15 hours wkly

CORe cohorts begin almost every month. Applications need to be submitted to the Coordinator, Careers & Internships at Huron in at least 6 weeks prior to when you wish to start. The next available start dates are available here
