Core Modules

Each core module is built around a challenge, which will test much more than just your newly acquired business knowledge. You’ll be assessed throughout the core modules on your application of the skills and mindsets that are essential to a successful career on a global scale.

Do your degree differently

Hult’s educational approach is built on the way we naturally learn and work in the real world. Rather than sitting in separate and disconnected courses, you get to apply the relevant theory from multiple disciplines like marketing, finance, and ethics to a single challenge in each core module.

Challenge-based approach

Each module is geared toward testing your business acumen with a challenge. Pitch your startup idea, participate in a hackathon or simulation, or consult for a real-life company.


To thrive on a transformational program, you’ll need a lot of support along the way. You’ll be assigned a personal career and development coach who will walk with you and offer personalized, expert advice and support throughout your time at Hult.

Mindsets and core skills

We partnered with Burning Glass Technologies and analyzed millions of job postings worldwide to understand the key mindsets and core skills that are essential for not only when you first graduate, but also for when you become the CEO. Workshops and tutorials on these mindsets and core skills are taught throughout the core modules and you are continually assessed on your development of them as you apply them to your challenges.
