Harvard Business School has one of the most respected MBA programs in the country. And now, entrepreneurs can take advantage of the prestige of a HBS education by enrolling in a new four-week, online course, Entrepreneurship Essentials: People, Opportunity, Context, and Deal, offered through its HBX program.
Participants will walk through the entrepreneurial journey, from finding an idea, to gaining traction in the marketplace, to raising capital. The learning is active, case-based, and social, and is structured to allow students to complete the coursework on their own time. The overarching framework of the program—People, Opportunity, Context, Deal— has been taught to thousands of Harvard Business School MBA students over the past 30 years.
Entrepreneurs John Osher, who has successfully launched many consumer products; Jennifer Hyman, CEO of Rent the Runway, which rents fashionable dresses and accessories; and Scott Cook, founder of Intuit, a software startup that grew to multibillion dollar enterprise, will offer insight and advice based on their personal experience.
Applications for the program, which costs $950, are accepted on a rolling basis. The first session will be held in October. For more information, click here.
