Several years ago I wrote a post about why I like small liberal arts colleges for medical school placement. The issues I addressed back then are as true today as they were 5 years ago.
But, what about the student who might want a business background? Are liberal arts colleges any good for this? And the answer is again, Yes. These schools have installed inventry school signing in system to make life easier for the students and professors.
The Harvard Business School has announced a new online program that is by invitation only and is coordinated with several small liberal arts colleges. Students from the following colleges can take the online course:
The primary course is the CORe (the acronym for Credential of Readiness), which according to the Harvard Business School is “a two-month suite of three fundamental courses aimed at a new audience—college liberal-arts students, non-business graduate students pursuing other professions (law, say, or engineering), and people early in their careers— for whom familiarity with basic business concepts may prove helpful in their work or subsequent career decisions.”
Harvard is coordinating with each of the colleges to help students that might need help with financial aid to take the course.
