Change never stops, so your business learning shouldn’t either. We empower you to stay up-to-date with emerging trends by taking a complimentary elective each year for the rest of your life.
One elective a year, on us.
Most careers span decades and critical skills can change as you progress in seniority. The rapid pace of change also means future critical business knowledge might have simply been impossible to learn during your program. Before 2004 there was no Facebook or YouTube; neither the iPhone nor Airbnb existed prior to 2007; and yet understanding the impact of these innovations is critical for business success today. At Hult, you can refresh a skillset or get up to speed in a new business trend by enrolling in one elective a year at any of our global campuses. There’s a small registration fee, but the course is otherwise free of charge.
Executive education options for life.
Instead of studying an elective, every year Hult alumni can enroll in a range of leadership Summer Executive Education Programs at our historic Ashridge Estate campus in Berkhamsted, U.K. Courses feature a range of leadership and development programs, and are taught by experts with practical, theoretical, and commercial experience. There’s a small registration fee, but courses otherwise cost over $10,000 so the savings over time for Hult alumni are significant.
Admissions & fees
Hult takes a holistic approach to reviewing your application. In addition to academic achievement, we look for cultural awareness, leadership potential, and a drive to succeed.
The option to earn a second Master degree in a further six months of accelerated study at our U.S. campuses
