The online Credential of Readiness (CORe) program will prepare you to contribute to business discussions and decision-making, whether you’re looking to advance your career, considering graduate school, or exploring new career paths.
CORe consists of three courses—Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting —and a final exam. Immerse yourself in real challenges faced by seasoned leaders across a variety of industries, develop business intuition through interactive learning exercises, and join a global community of peers. As in the business world, you’ll be evaluated on the quality and timeliness of your work and your contributions to the learning community.
In response to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, HBS Online will once again offer current Middlebury College students the opportunity to take May or June CORe for $450 (an 80% discount), regardless of financial need. Enrollment deadlines are fast approaching (May 10 and June 14).
To receive the discount, you must use your campus email address to sign up and confirm in your application that your are a current student. Skip the scholarship section when applying. During enrollment, please enter this promotional code – CoreSummer21 – to receive the discounted pricing before submitting payment. You also have the option to forward payment to a third party to complete enrollment.

- There is no additional discounting available for high need students – all students can take the program at HBS’s high need price.
