Harvard Levene MBA Partnership

Exclusively for Levene MBA Students


The Levene School is proud to be one of only three Schools in Canada to have a partnership with Harvard Business School's online branch HBS Online. This partnership allows Levene MBA students to take advantage of low tuition rates for courses taught by Harvard Business School faculty members. MBA students are eligible to take up to two courses through HBS Online Credential of Readiness (CORe) program and have the credits transferred to their Levene MBA program. Students may also complete a third course - Financial Accounting - to earn the CORe certificate from HBS Online and Harvard Business School.

What courses are eligible for transfer credit into my MBA program?

Two of the three courses offered in the HBS Online CORe program are eligible for transfer credit to your Levene MBA program. They are:

  • Economics for Managers
  • Business Analytics

What are the tuition fees?

Because of our partnership with HBS Online, if you indicate at the time of registration you want to be considered for a scholarship / financial aid, you will receive a USD 450 rebate resulting in a per course cost of USD 1050.

If you bundle all three CORe courses (remember you only receive credit from Levene for up to two as part of your MBA) the total cost would be USD 1575 after scholarship is applied. If you complete all three courses you receive a certificate from HBS Online.

What is the Application Process?

Prior to applying for HBS Online courses students must complete and submit to the Levene School a “Request for Transfer Credit” via UR Self Service. A transfer credit policy applies. Refer to your student handbook or the FGSR web page.
