Boise State University and Harvard Business School’s HBX online program have announced a partnership that will allow Idaho students and the business community to take HBX courses.
Under the agreement, Boise State students and any community members who are interested in enrolling in Harvard Business School’s HBX CORe digital learning program will be able to earn a Credential of Readiness from Harvard Business School. Students who enroll through Boise State will also earn college credits by paying the Boise State per credit fees.
The HBX online program has had success with private schools nationwide. Boise State will become the first public university to employ HBX through its College of Innovation and Design. Boise State President Bob Kustra was joined by Gordon Jones, dean of the College of Innovation and Design, and Patrick Mullane, HBX executive director, to announce the news to approximately 200 area business leaders Thursday.
Harvard Business School faculty will deliver the programming to participants. The members of faculty are the ones who created the curriculum, teach the courses and designed the course delivery platform.
Students will earn a Credential of Readiness from Harvard Business School’s HBX after completing the program and passing an exam.
