Learn the language of business:
Apply for Harvard Business School's HBX CORe for LMU students

Are you a BCLA student hoping to land a great job after graduation, but find business discussions as indecipherable as a foreign language? Are you a CFA or SFTV student considering a freelance career after graduation, but uncertain about the business acumen required for working as an artist? Are you a Seaver student looking to enhance your business knowledge in order to compete for assistantships and research positions?

HBX CORe is for you.

HBX Credential of Readiness (CORe) is a rigorous online program developed by Harvard Business School to help you achieve fluency in the language of business. You will develop deep-seated problem solving skills and the confidence to contribute to business discussions and decision making. A credential from HBX and Harvard Business School is granted upon successful completion of CORe. The CORe Credential will set your resume apart and expand your network by giving you access to the impressive and diverse CORe community. Previous business experience or coursework is not required.
