Harvard Law Students Offered Discount on HBX Program

By Andrew M. Duehren, Crimson Staff Writer

Incoming Harvard Law School students can now participate in an online Harvard Business School “Credential of Readiness” program at a discounted price. The program will provide classes in Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting for students in the Class of 2018 at the Law School.

The program, which costs $1,800, will be available to incoming Harvard Law School students on a first-come, first-served basis for $250, according to a press release on the Harvard Law Today website. The new cross-school initiative, still in a pilot stage, will start in June and run for 11 weeks.

The CORe program is the first program of HBX, the Business School’s online educational platform, and was launched last year. In February, the range of students eligible to apply to the program was broadened to students and post-graduates around the world.

The business education offering comes after a Law School study last year showed that legal employers increasingly value a background in accounting, corporate finance, and financial statement analysis.

Jessica L. Soban ’02, the assistant dean and chief admissions officer at the Law School, was not available for comment at press time.
