Course Policies and Discounts

Harvard Online also offers select discounts for HBS Online courses: 

All Harvard Online discounts for courses on the HBS Online platform may not be combined with other scholarships, financial aid, or other offers. Only one discount may be used per order. Participants who are enrolling in discount-eligible cohorts as part of a corporate learning package are NOT eligible for any discount. Participants deferring from discount-eligible cohorts to non-eligible cohorts will not retain the discount. Deferrals are subject to the standard HBS Online program policies. You can’t redeem this discount for cash, and it can’t be transferred or sold. It’s void where prohibited by law. These terms and conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

Past-Participant Discount

Learners who have enrolled in at least one qualifying Harvard Online program are eligible to receive a 30% discount on each subsequent qualifying program enrollment, regardless of completion or certificate status in the first purchased program. The discount is NOT valid for the first purchased program. Participants are only eligible to receive a discount after the withdrawal deadline (24 hours after the start of a program*) passes for their first purchased program. 

Past-Participant Discounts are automatically applied to the Program Fee upon time of payment. Discounts are not available after you've submitted payment, so if you think you are eligible for a discount on a registration, please review this discount policy in detail before you submit any payment.

At this time, the discount is for 30% off of the Program Fee for only the programs listed below. Offer terms are subject to change.

  • Big Data for Social Good
  • Data Privacy and Technology
  • Data Science for Business
  • Data Science Principles
  • Digital Health
  • Financial Analysis & Valuation for Lawyers
  • Health Care Economics
  • Open Innovation

*Please note, this is 24 hours after the program materials become available, not after you log in.
