Our initiative with Harvard Business School Online (HBS Online) allows University of the People students to take a selection of HBS Online courses as part of their studies through the Collaborating Colleges program. In taking these courses, UoPeople students receive a Credential of Readiness (CORe) certification to help them stand out in a competitive job market and credit toward their UoPeople degree, while learning the fundamentals of business.
University of the People (UoPeople) is a member of Harvard Business School Online’s (HBS Online’s) Collaborating Colleges program. Harvard Business School Online offers a unique and highly engaging way to learn vital business concepts via an innovative online platform that brings the Harvard Business School classroom to you.
UoPeople undergraduate students can enroll in and receive need-based scholarships for HBS Online’s flagship program the Credential of Readiness (CORe), a three-course primer in the fundamentals of business. The three courses are Economics for Managers, Financial Accounting, and Business Analytics. Upon successful completion, participants will receive an HBS Online Credential of Readiness and can earn academic credits toward their UoPeople degree.
“I am excited to welcome University of the People to HBS Online’s family of Collaborating Colleges,” said Senior Associate Dean of HBS Online Debora Spar. “Now, more than ever, we need to provide an equal opportunity to education for all, and this relationship is an important step in Harvard Business School’s broader diversity and inclusion initiatives.”
This collaboration, along with other high profile partnerships, reinforces the high level of UoPeople’s degrees, and is an excellent opportunity for our students to earn credits toward their degree from one of the top universities worldwide.
“With online education at an all-time high, this relationship expands UoPeople’s mission to offer even greater quality, online, accessible, and affordable higher education to qualified students,” said UoPeople President Shai Reshef. “We always look for opportunities to enrich our student experience. We are, therefore, incredibly proud to provide our students with the chance to experience the richness of the acclaimed HBS Online curriculum and receive a valuable credential to help them stand out in the job market.”
At University of the People, we will continue to open the gates to higher education, and strive to offer our students the best opportunities available.
