Courses

Courses and electives

No matter where in the world you’ve attended high school, or how intensely you want to study while you’re at Hult, our flexible curriculum is built to adapt to your needs and goals. So you can study the topics you choose, at the speed that suits you.

Global Standard Track: Three years

In some parts of the world, you will spend five years at high school. This means you can qualify to bring up to 30 “Advanced Placement” (AP) credits with you, effectively skipping your first year and graduating in as little as three years. The table below shows the four-year U.S. format, use it to explore a sample of mandatory courses and challenges. The electives you choose will be based on your goals and interests.

U.S. Standard Track: Four years

If you come from any four-year high school, you will be on this track and will typically take four years to complete your degree. This is the standard length of an undergraduate program at most U.S. colleges and universities. Below you can explore a sample of mandatory courses and challenges. The electives you choose will be based on your goals and interests.

Year 1

Business Core: Navigating the Business Environment

Businesses must be able to understand and navigate an increasingly complex web of forces in order to thrive in today’s highly interconnected, globalized world. In this course, students will learn about each component of that web—commonly known as the business environment—and how to think about those components individually and analyze them as a whole. Students will leave this course with an understanding of industry dynamics and overarching forces that help to determine a firm’s destiny. This knowledge will serve as a firm foundation upon which to build the rest of their business education.

Business Core: Principles of Entrepreneurship

In this course, you will learn the essential attributes of an entrepreneur and the stages you’ll go through in taking the seed of an idea and growing it into a successful business. It takes more than a good business plan and money to succeed—entrepreneurs must understand that all too often, the strengths that helped them be successful as startups become liabilities to overcome in order to take the business to the next level.

Business Core: Financial Accounting

This course provides an introduction to the basic principles of accounting and finance, helping students to develop an understanding of double-entry rules and the application of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the preparation of primary financial accounting statements. Financial statements are prepared to represent the profitability and value of business enterprises. As such, financial statements convey important information to business owners, managers, and investors. Business owners and managers make important decisions about the use of cash on hand and the allocation of scarce resources by relying heavily on financial statements and accounting analysis.

Business Core: Principles of Economics

This introduction to economic principles covers key concepts and issues in both Macroeconomics and Microeconomics. The course is an ideal choice for students with no previous knowledge of the subject and is an essential prerequisite for all other economics courses. Those with a suitable level of exisiting knowledge (from high school or transfer credits) may waive the course. The content of the course is designed as a non-technical primer for non-economics students who need a basic “economic literacy” in order to understand real-world economic phenomena.

World, Future, & You: Exploring Self & Society

This course aims to help students develop the self-awareness and personal leadership crucial to success in both business and their personal lives. Students will be challenged to reflect on their own aspirations, develop cultural sensitivity and discover how they can make a positive contribution on campus and in their local and global communities, and learn to feel at home at Hult and as citizens of the world.

World, Future, & You: Emerging Technologies

In this course, students will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss new and emerging technologies and to consider their practical implications for the future of business. Each year the course will focus on a pair of exciting technological innovations: recent courses have focused on subjects like artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, and autonomous vehicles. Students will work together in a creative and collaborative classroom environment where they will reflect on the effects and opportunities to which these technologies will lead and develop, and design projects of their own based on these expectations.

World, Future, & You: Arts & Humanities

You can choose from courses such as: - Fundamentals of Design - Storytelling & Persuasion - Design Thinking - Art & Design for Business - Creative Industries - Video in Marketing

Core Challenge: Startup

During the Startup Challenge, you’ll work in teams to design and pitch a product or service to a specific target audience. Using design thinking to recognize what makes a good offering, you’ll decide which market your venture will add value to. Then you’ll promote your venture, helping you understand the importance of finding and creatively reaching your future customers. This challenge encourages you to think on your feet, present your ideas, and collaboratively approach problem solving with a positive mindset.

30 credits

Year 2

Business Core: Principles of Finance

Managing any modern corporation is impossible without a thorough understanding and knowledge of financial markets, financial institutions, and financial decision making processes. Principles of Finance aims to provide you with knowledge of different markets and principles of decision-making in financing, investment, and financial management in companies.

Business Core: Principles of Management

Traditionally, the term “management” refers to the activities involved in four general functions: planning, organizing, leading, and coordinating resources. In order to appreciate current and emerging management trends, it is helpful to recognize how management has evolved over time and what the key challenges for management are at present and in the future. This course will cover topics including managerial decision making, setting goals and strategy, and how to motivate and manage staff.

Business Core: Principles of Marketing

In Principles of Marketing, you will learn to understand consumer behavior, how to connect with market needs, and how to shape brand perceptions. You will learn the theory and practical implications of marketing concepts and will learn to use analytical tools. Example topics include branding, market planning and research, pricing, packaging, distribution, and promotion.

Business Core: Economic Theory & Application

This course follows on from Principles of Economics. It explores key economic concepts rigorously and critically and places a strong emphasis on the application of economic ideas to realworld phenomena. Topics include: Going beyond AD-AS diagrams to add more complex macroeconomic analysis, adding international issues such as exchange rates, balance of payments and openeconomy macroeconomics, examination of the analysis underpinning the orthodox concept of economic choice—and consideration of criticism and alternatives to it, adding models of game theory, strategic interaction, and other analysis of firms and competition to the standard analysis of firms and market structure.

World, Future, & You: Design Thinking for Social Impact

During this course, students will use design thinking principles to develop and prototype an innovative business solution to an important social problem. Each semester in which the course is offered will focus on a new socially relevant theme or problem area. Using a design thinking framework, students will research and consult with affected communities or stakeholders, clarify and define the social problem they will aim to solve, and use a range of ideation techniques to develop possible solutions. Next, they will build a prototype for testing by potential users. Repeated iterations at each stage and of the entire process will ensure the final product is well adapted to the real need of potential users and likely to generate genuine social impact.

World, Future, & You: Global Ethics

You can choose from courses such as: - Contemporary Ethics - Creative Problem Solving - Ethics & Regulation of Cyberspace - Philosophy of Law - Law of Tort

Core Challenge: Social Impact

The Social Impact Challenge is modeled on the prestigious Hult Prize student competition, which is dedicated to launching the world’s next wave of social entrepreneurs. You and your team will be challenged to think globally and responsibly to solve a pressing social issue. Challenge topics have ranged from improving education in developing nations to addressing the refugee crisis. This challenge will help you to think about corporate responsibility and the power business has to do well by doing good.

30 credits

Year 3

Business Core: Socially Responsible Business

In today’s complex business environment, the need for enlightened, ethical leadership capable of building and sustaining trust is critical to the realization of strategic and organizational goals. At present, there are no systematically applied, universally accepted business principles that govern how companies should carry out corporate responsibility. But the tide is changing. This course focuses on the role of the manager and the corporation amid increasing expectations of greater social and environmental accountability

Business Core: Financial Accounting

This course provides an introduction to the basic principles of accounting and finance, helping students to develop an understanding of double-entry rules and the application of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the preparation of primary financial accounting statements. Financial statements are prepared to represent the profitability and value of business enterprises. As such, financial statements convey important information to business owners, managers, and investors. Business owners and managers make important decisions about the use of cash on hand and the allocation of scarce resources by relying heavily on financial statements and accounting analysis.

World, Future, & You: Internship

Internships are a vital component of practical learning, and you’ll be expected to complete at least one internship while you’re a student at Hult. Internship readiness workshops and one-to-one advising sessions are available to help you prepare for working independently within a business. While some students source their own internships, others will benefit from Hult’s internship placement efforts.

World, Future, & You: Science, Technology & Society

Your science and technology elective can be used to give you an understanding of scientific methods and the impact of science and technology on society, as well as provide an introduction to key technical skills such as programming.

Major/Electives

If you don't choose a major, you can choose any electives to make up the credits for your degree. Hult offers a choice of five majors: Management, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Accounting, and Finance. Your choice largely defines your course options during your final years of study and often aligns closely with your career aspirations. In order to complete your major, you will take at least seven courses in your chosen field of specialization.

Core Challenge: Major

The Major Challenge enables you to focus more closely on your specialization and develops your career-ready skills. The challenge will focus on an issue or problem that requires you to use the theory you’ve learned in class and apply it to the real world and real companies. And the challenges may even go beyond the Hult campus—you could be competing against students from hundreds of other schools all over the world to work on a solution for a leading company.

30 credits

Year 4

Business Core: Global Strategy

This course represents the culmination of your studies in the Business Core at Hult and builds on previous coursework in the functional areas of business decision making. Rather than focusing on day-to-day management problems, it emphasizes long-range policy formation and the implementation of global strategy, approached from the perspective of top management in different types of firms: international profit-making corporations, public corporations, and not-for-profit organizations. To build your appreciation of the global environment in which businesses operate, this course develops a general model for the analysis of global business situations and gives you the opportunity to practice the skills of analysis and decision making.

World, Future, & You: Future Societies

Scientific and technological progress are driving change in the modern world at an accelerating pace, and societies are struggling to adapt. This course is designed to provide a capstone experience for students, integrating academic knowledge and practical experience acquired through other courses while encouraging them to develop a vision of their own future roles as leaders in business and society.

World, Future, & You: Business Analytics

We are living in an age of information overload. Large amounts of data are generated by humans, computers, and instruments, and much of the data is available on the Internet. Today’s big challenge is not about generating data but how to analyze them. This course focuses on fundamental statistical techniques to build skills in discovering and communicating insights and will introduce you to the basic concepts needed to start understanding our world through data.

Major/Electives

If you don't choose a major, you can choose any electives to make up the credits for your degree. Hult offers a choice of five majors: Management, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Accounting, and Finance. Your choice largely defines your course options during your final years of study and often aligns closely with your career aspirations. In order to complete your major, you will take at least seven courses in your chosen field of specialization.

Core Challenge: Capstone

In your final year, you’ll complete your capstone project. This project will be relevant to your interests and major and will represent the culmination of your studies. You can complete your capstone in one of four ways: through the Hult Business Challenge, the Hult Founder’s Lab, writing a thesis, or undertaking a capstone internship. For the Hult Business Challenge, you'll either work on your own startup, develop the idea into a viable business proposition, and then pitch it to executives through the Hult Founder’s Lab. Or you’ll solve a strategic challenge set by the management of a major company. Past clients have included Amazon, Unilever, and UBS. You’ll receive a real problem and then be tasked with fixing it. The best teams will present the solutions to the client—with a real possibility that they will take your idea to fruition.
