Middlebury College recently signed a collaborative agreement with HBX, Harvard Business School’s online digital education initiative, to make available the Credential of Readiness (CORe) business fundamentals program to current undergraduate students. Designed for liberal arts students, CORe is an interactive online program composed of three (non-credit-bearing) courses: Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting. Taught entirely online by Harvard Business School faculty, the program utilizes the school’s HBX platform. Middlebury students will not receive course credit for the CORe program; instead, students who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion from HBX.
Our agreement with HBX reserves places in each CORe cohort and—importantly—guarantees need-based financial aid from HBX for students currently receiving financial aid at Middlebury. An anonymous Middlebury donor has provided additional funding for qualified students’ unmet need. We are delighted to be able to expand access to this program to all of our students.
If you are interested in the program and want to learn more, attend the information session, visit the HBX website, or schedule an appointment with Ursula Olender, director of career advising in the Center for Careers and Internships.
May cohort – May 16-July 13 (deadline to apply is May 3)
June cohort – June 6-August 18 (deadline to apply is May 24)
