* This is an intensive, 8-week version of our HBX CORe program. It will contain the same content as the other CORe cohorts, but condensed into a shorter time frame.

Additional cohorts will be added over the coming months.

Applications are reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis. We are currently processing applications for the June cohort. Admission decisions will be announced approximately every other week.

The fee for HBX CORe is $1,800.

Institutional need-based scholarships are available to current students who can demonstrate financial need. The online HBX CORe application features an "Institutional Need-Based Scholarship" section that will assist in determining your eligibility. We expect to expand our financing options in the future to assist a wider range of participants.

I believe that CORe helped prove to prospective employers, as well as myself, that I understand the fundamentals of business.
