The University of Western Australia will soon be providing students with the option to undertake an online course run by Harvard Business School, under a new collaboration agreement.

New UWA vice-chancellor Dawn Freshwater said through the agreement, the university would be able to offer its students new learning opportunities through Harvard’s online learning platform, HBX.

The program puts students in the role of a business leader and requires them to engage with their peers to work through real world business challenges, with a view to providing a perspective on the world and how businesses work.

“This unique collaboration will allow us to provide exciting global learning opportunities for our students and better help prepare them for their future careers,” Professor Freshwater said.

“I am delighted that we can now provide our students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills with one of the world’s finest universities.”

It should be noted that, according to HBX’s website, HBX students are not considered a Harvard Business School student.

HBX executive director Patrick Mullane said he was pleased to offer HBX’s CORe program, which is considered a primer on the fundamentals of business.

“CORe was designed to expand the reach of Harvard Business School and to provide individuals from around the world with the skills needed to excel in their careers,” he said.

“We look forward to welcoming UWA students on the HBX platform.”
