What is the difference between HBS Online CORe and the individual HBS Online Courses?
HBS Online CORe encompasses three individual HBS Online courses and includes a final, proctored exam to earn the Credential of Readiness from Harvard Business School Online. The individual courses do not have a final, proctored exam. Those who complete an individual course earn a certificate for that topic from Harvard Business School Online. Upon successful completion of individual HBS Online courses, you will earn a certificate from Harvard Business School Online.
Can I get credit/do I want credit/how is the course graded?
If you would like to receive credit for the HBS Online CORe courses at Boise State, you will need to enroll as a student at Boise State and enroll in the course. If you take the course for credit, it is graded as pass/fail.
What does the course fee cover? What extra materials are needed?
