Quartz’s Max Nisen writes about a new online offering by Harvard Business School that breaks away from traditional education and MOOCs. Nisen writes:
“Rather than offering free courses to the masses or creating a full online degree, it’s rolling out a $1,500, two-month program targeted at college students and recent graduates. Though its new platform is inspired by social networks and gaming platforms, the core of the curriculum will be the 100-year-old, case study teaching method, which HBS is known for.”
The program is called CORe (Credential of Readiness) and has three courses: Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting. It is intended to provide a basic set of tools for those with little or no business experience.
