Earning credits towards a degree

The credit, sometimes called the credit hour or the semester hour, is the basic unit of value for coursework used in almost all American universities. Each course at Hult is worth three credits. A Bachelor degree consists of 120 credits, most students take 30 credits per year, consisting of four courses each fall, four courses each winter, and two courses each spring. Hult’s flexible structure allows you to complete your degree in less time by taking up to 42 credits per year. Hult's Honors program is available to students with outstanding grades, enabling them to earn both a Bachelor and Master degree in four years.

Hult degree structure

Hult’s undergraduate program has seven essential components: Business Fundamentals, Communication Skills, Liberal Arts, Global Knowledge, Concentration, Open Electives, and Impact Challenges:

Business Fundamentals: These core courses provide students with a solid foundation in the functional areas of business and today's global business environment: Accounting and Finance, Marketing, Economics, Organizational Behavior, Business Ethics, Leadership, and Strategy.


Communication Skills: Hult trains students in the key communication skills needed to succeed in any profession: writing, speaking, researching, working in global teams, and the powers of persuasion.


Liberal Arts: These core courses introduce students to a range of academic disciplines and ways of studying the world. They aim to build a foundation of broad knowledge and understanding in areas such as history and society, arts and humanities, science and technology, and ethics and philosophy

Global Knowledge: Global knowledge courses deepen the liberal arts understanding and are offered in years three and four. These courses allow students to specialize in a region of the world, a foreign language, an advanced liberal arts category, or a topic relevant to today’s global politics.


Concentration: After building a solid foundation in Business Fundamentals, all students choose a concentration to develop in-depth expertise in a field. Hult offers concentrations in marketing, finance, management, and entrepreneurship.


Open Electives: Hult offers all students the opportunity to take four courses (12 credits) in any subject of their choice. These open electives allow students flexibility and freedom to pursue a second area of expertise, hone their professional skills, or simply explore a topic they are passionate about.
