The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School was founded in 2007 with a generous gift from William P. Carey, the late philanthropist and Johns Hopkins University trustee. Mr. Carey’s gift to Johns Hopkins, America’s first academic research institution, transformed the university’s 90-year-old part-time business program into a full-time business school. Mr. Carey believed that business education could help build a better society. The Carey Business School’s mission is to create and share knowledge that shapes business practices and develops leaders who will grow economies and societies, and are exemplary citizens. Carey articulates its mission to mean: “teaching business with humanity in mind.” These words are guided by the belief that business success is not an end unto itself but a means for building a more successful society. The Carey Business School offers graduate degree programs for full-time, part-time, and online students. Degrees offered include the full-time Global MBA and the part-time Flexible MBA. Full-time and part-time master’s programs in finance, health care management, enterprise risk management, real estate and infrastructure, marketing, and information systems are also available, as well as dual-degree MBA programs in design leadership, public health, and engineering. The GMBA’s signature initiative is the Innovation for Humanity course, an international residency that challenges Carey students to work with stakeholders in developing countries to address business problems. The Carey Business School has campuses in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
