Harvard Business School Begins Offering Credit for some Online Extension Courses - Campus Technology

Beginning in January, students who take select courses in Harvard Business School's online digital education initiative, also known as HBX, will receive college credit for them. Students who receive the HBX Certificate of Readiness (CORe) after passing three business fundamentals courses — business analytics, economics for managers and financial accounting — will receive eight undergraduate credits from the Harvard Extension School. Previously, those who took the courses, conceived a year and a half ago as an online counterpart to the on-campus Harvard Business School experience, received only the credential but no college credit. The eight units can count toward an undergraduate degree from the extension school and, if transferable, used toward a degree at another university.
