MGMT E-10 HBX CORe: Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting
Spring Term 2018 CRN 24586
CORe stands for Credential of Readiness and is offered through HBX, a digital learning initiative from the faculty of Harvard Business School. CORe is a primer on the fundamentals of business and is designed for students just getting started in the business world. Developed and taught by Harvard Business School faculty, this course covers business analytics, economics for managers, and financial accounting. The business analytics portion is taught by Janice Hammond and introduces quantitative methods used to analyze data and make better management decisions. The economics for managers portion is taught by Bharat Anand and includes the topics of customer demand, supplier cost, markets and competition, pricing, production, and differentiation. The financial accounting portion is taught by V.G. Narayanan and covers concepts such as profit and revenue, assets and liabilities, and students learn how to prepare and analyze financial statements.
All learning materials and instructor and participant interaction takes place within the online HBX CORe learning environment. Although the professors do not have direct real-time interaction with students, they have developed short video lectures, cases, exercises, and other interactive learning elements to create a highly engaging educational experience. Participants typically learn as much (if not more) from thoughtful participation and from peers in this active learning ecosystem as they do from faculty content. Students registered in CORe will be required to keep up with the course material during the Harvard Extension School's Spring Break, March 12-18. For more information see HBX CORe.
