HPU | College of Business

College of Business


At HPU, we know there is no single path to a successful career in business. We understand students need the flexibility to explore different areas of business while acquiring real-world skills that are directly applicable to whatever path they choose.

We are committed to offering business students the experiential learning opportunities we believe are key to translating what they learn in the classroom into their individual careers. That’s why HPU became the first university in the world to partner with Coursera’s Career Academy, providing students at the undergraduate and graduate levels access to Career Academy certificates that complement business students’ degree programs of choice. Learn more about how we’re helping our students become career-ready with skills-based learning from leading organizations.
