The Sprott Shaw College Business Administration Management with Practicum – HBX CORe diploma program enhances our existing Sprott Shaw College’s Business Administration Management program with the Harvard Business School’s HBX Credential of Readiness (CORe), providing a foundational understanding of business operations which equips graduates to manage activities in a wide variety of industries. Many graduates find opportunities directing small and medium sized businesses or providing departmental support in larger organizations.
People planning to work in this competitive field require strong interpersonal, communication and organizational skills. Those who have developed skills in these areas will be better prepared to compete for jobs. With additional experience or training, progression to management positions is possible.
The Harvard Business School HBX Credential of Readiness (CORe) provides business fundamentals for early-career high potentials and aspiring leaders to improve on the job performance. The CORe curriculum includes Business Analytics, Economics for Managers and Financial Accounting.
This program covers the fundamentals of business in a way that allows participants to understand how business works and develop the skills necessary to increase their ability to contribute to the organization’s success.
HBX CORe is a three-course cohort-based program designed to engage participants in active learning, whereby participants are expected to contribute to the learning of others. Concepts are taught in the context of real world situations, designed to transform abstract concepts into observable learning situations. Students will complete the three-course HBX CORe program during the in-class instruction of their studies.
Graduates of this program will receive a diploma from Sprott Shaw College, as well as a Credential of Readiness from the Harvard Business School HBX.
NOTE: Beyond the Credential of Readiness, Harvard Business School HBX will not offer course or degree credits or any formal academic credential for the CORe program.
