Boise State has become the first public university to collaborate with Harvard Business School’s innovative online program, known as HBX CORe.
Boise State students and community business leaders now can enroll in HBX CORe and earn a Credential of Readiness from Harvard Business School. Students will earn both the credential and undergraduate college credit, all for the cost of their Boise State tuition.
“The mission of the Harvard Business School is to educate leaders that make a difference in the world,” said HBX Executive Director Patrick Mullane. “If HBX has taught us anything, it’s that leaders exist at all levels within organizations and in all geographies. In collaboration with Boise State University, we will now be able to reach even more of those leaders.”
The Credential of Readiness is Harvard Business School’s primer on the fundamentals of business thinking. The Credential of Readiness covers the basics of analytics, economics and accounting but is designed for students in all areas of study — a college engineering major hoping to land a job in Silicon Valley, a philosophy major looking to work in a nonprofit after graduation, or an art historian with a dream of someday opening an art gallery.
“We are excited to help bring Harvard Business School’s HBX CORe to Idaho,” said Boise State President Bob Kustra. “This collaboration allows us to offer the highest quality online educational programming in a way that is affordable and accessible for Idaho students.”
HBX has worked with selected institutions across the country, but through the College of Innovation and Design, Boise State is the first public university to create a local academic program that leverages the HBX CORe program.
