Harvard CORe Program


The Harvard Business School Online Credential of Readiness (HBS CORe) program is a rigorous, immersive online curriculum that prepares students to pursue the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. Harvard CORe is a special opportunity available to all CSU Pueblo students and alums (who graduated in the last year) considering a Masters of Business Administration program in their future - especially those students who are not completing an undergraduate degree in business.

The CSU Pueblo Hasan School of Business will accept the Harvard CORe certificate as equivalent "leveling courses" for non-business majors applying to the 3+2 MBA program at CSU Pueblo. The opportunity is provided at no cost to CSU Pueblo students! 


The program covers three foundational business subjects: business analytics, economics for management, and financial accounting.
