Business Essentials is an immersive, 10-week carefully vetted program designed to introduce important business concepts and methods to high-school students who intend to go on to college and want to develop a solid understanding of core topics they will encounter both in business and as an undergraduate. The program guides you with several video case studies and interactive activities, and culminates in a final, written case study analysis.


In this module we explore how the financial markets operate; we look closely at how different types of instruments (investment products) such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and exchange traded funds (ETFs) function; and (3) explore some of the basic uses for such instruments. This module is open to all students; however, it is designed for high school students who intend to go on to college and want to develop a solid core understanding of this extremely important business topic. Students in Module I will take several short-online multiple choice quizzes and also participate in a weekly online discuss group. Students can enroll in Module I and not be required to take subsequent modules. This is a particularly beneficial option for students ages 12-15 who want to develop a basic understanding of how the stock and financial markets operate.


In Module II we primarily focus on some of the primary tools and theories used in finance, such as the internal rate of return, the efficient market hypothesis, and the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). We apply these topics to real-life situations through a case-study analysis, and we learn how businesses make decisions based on these and other metrics. We also look at the different agents and institutions that are responsible for maintaining the flow of the financial markets, such as the Federal Reserve and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Students will complete several online quizzes and also participate in an online discussion group.


This course explores the historical origins, central teachings, and devotional practices of the major religious traditions―Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We considered common themes of the human experience: the holy or sacred, evil and suffering, love and compassion, wisdom and justice, death and deliverance. We explore the roles and meanings of religious symbols through lectures, discussion, film, and the writing of three short critical essays.


The Boston Port Bill, one of the four Coercive Acts of 1775, closed Boston Harbor to all trade and commerce, thereby affecting the local job market. Although Parliamentary laws negatively affected all of the Colonies, Boston’s economy, which relied heavily on its shipping industry, was particularly affected. How did the local job market affect the formation of America? What explains the social and economic origins of the American Revolution? This course concentrates on the social, economic, and occupational conditions between 1770 and 1775. Students will write 3 short papers that analyze the social and economic conditions during this period and explains how such conditions led to the American Revolution.


Why do people and businesses make certain decisions about their money? What drives them to buy or sell stocks, real estate, or something else of value? In this module, we explore behavioral factors that drive many business decisions. We examine different theories on why people make the choices they make, and we compare the effects of psychological, cognitive, emotional, cultural and social factors on the economic decisions of individuals and institutions and how those decisions vary from those implied by classical theory. Students will complete several quizzes online, and also participate in an online group discussion.


This course explores the development of American constitutional government, beginning with the drafting and ratifying of the state and federal constitutions in the 1770s and 1780s, problems of individual liberty versus government power, state rights, race and slavery, war powers, and pluralism. Students will write 2 essays and also participate in an online group discussion.


This course explores the development of the United States Constitution since the Civil War. Some of the nation's most troubling Constitutional issues were settled by the Civil War, but it also raised others. Who are citizens of the U.S.? What rights do they have under the Constitution? Who should protect these rights? What powers should the different branches of government have? How can these powers be exercised, and how can they be controlled? These are the major Constitutional questions since the Civil War. Students will write 2 essays and complete an online quiz.
