The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, also referred to as Carey Business School or JHUCarey or simply Carey, is the business school of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. As "the newest school in America's first research university,"[2] The school offers full-time and part-time MBA degrees, master of science degrees, a bachelor of science degree, several joint degrees with other Johns Hopkins schools, and a variety of graduate certificates as well.


The origins of the school can be traced back to 1909, when the "College Courses for Teachers" school was created at Hopkins. In 1925 the school changed its name to "College for Teachers", then adopted the name "McCoy College" in 1947 as it welcomed into its classrooms many World War II veterans studying on the G.I. Bill. In 1965, the school's name changed again, to "Evening College and Summer Session", until 1983, when it became known as the School of Continuing Studies. Then, in 1999, in order to more clearly reflect its two remaining major divisions, the school was renamed as the School of Professional Studies in Business and Education (SPSBE). Throughout all of these iterations, the central objective of serving the educational needs of working professionals, allowing them to complete degrees while maintaining careers, held true. Over the years, the school evolved from a teacher’s college to one of nine major schools within the university, housing the majority of Hopkins' part-time academic programs. On January 1, 2007, SPSBE separated into two new schools—the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School, and the Johns Hopkins University School of Education; the latter soon rose to the status of the No. 1 ranked education school in the U.S.[3][4]

This split was engendered by the late philanthropist William P. Carey's announcement on December 5, 2006 of his gift of $50 million to Johns Hopkins through his W. P. Carey Foundation, to create a freestanding business school at the university. The gift remains the largest to Hopkins in support of business education to date. The school is named in honor of Wm. Polk Carey's great-great-great-grandfather, James Carey, an 18th- and 19th-century Baltimore shipper, chairman of the Bank of Maryland, a member of Baltimore's first City Council, and a relative of university founder Johns Hopkins.[5]

The current dean of Carey Business School is Bernard T. Ferrari.[6]


In August 2010, the Carey Business School launched its signature full-time Global MBA Program designed to "reinvent" the traditional approach to MBA education and embody the school's mission of "Teaching Business with Humanity in Mind."[7] Since then, the Executive MBA and several full-time Masters of Science degrees were added. The full-time MS degree concentrations include Real Estate and Infrastructure, Health Care Management, Enterprise Risk Management, Finance, and Marketing. The school also offers part-time Flex MBA and Master of Science degrees in Finance, Marketing, Real Estate and Infrastructure, Health Care Management, Finance, Marketing, and Information Systems. Certificate programs are offered in Financial Management and Investments. An online graduate certificate in the Business of Health Care was added in 2014.

The school counts as one of its major strengths its developing partnerships and collaborations with other Johns Hopkins schools, including the School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, plus the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, Whiting School of Engineering, and Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. From these partnerships have come a number of joint-degree MBA programs, including the MBA/MS in Nursing, the MBA/MS in Biotechnology, the MBA/MA in Government, and the MBA/MA in Communication. Also available from the school and administered jointly with the School of Medicine is the MBA in Medical Services Management; and, with the Bloomberg School of Public Health and on a full-time basis, the MBA/Master of Public Health. In 2012, Carey began offering a MBA/MA in Design Leadership, in collaboration with the Maryland Institute College of Art.[8]

The Carey Business School continues to undergo significant institutional development, hiring additional full-time faculty and exploring new course and program offerings.[9]


The Carey Business School's flagship program is the full-time Global MBA.

  • Discovery to Market (also known as "D2M"): groups of students are paired with inventors through the Johns Hopkins' Technology Transfer office to assess the commercial feasibility of new discoveries.[10][11]
  • Innovation for Humanity (also known as "I4H"): a semester-long program in sustainable business which pairs groups of students with entrepreneurs in developing countries. This includes a three-week-long international residency.[12]
  • Co-taught classes during the first semester: core business disciplines are taught by two professors at once. For example, rather than offer two introductory classes in finance and accounting, the Global MBA includes a class called Financial Resources, which combines Basic Accounting with Managerial Accounting, Corporate Finance, and Investments.

The Carey Business School also offers distinctive Master of Science degrees that cover several specialities in innovative formats. These programs are geared toward part-time study; however, any student may pursue a full-time course of study in the master's programs. Master's students also have the option of earning an MBA in only 36 additional credits.

The school has several campus locations in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. corridor, including:


In 2013, the Eduniversal Business School Palm League Rankings deemed the Carey Business School as being the 5th ranked institution nationally in its 4 Palms of Excellence category, which is reserved for "top business schools with significant international influence."[13]

The Best-Masters 2013-2014 Eduniversal World Masters Rankings have placed the Carey Business School M.S. in Marketing degree at No. 17, the M.B.A. in Medical Services Management at No. 36, the M.S. in Information Systems at No. 14, and the M.S. in Real Estate at No. 28 respectively.[14]

In 2012, the QS Global 200 Business Schools Report,[15] released annually by Quacquarelli Symonds based on major global employers' votes, ranked the Carey Business School No. 45, up from No. 52 in 2011.[16] The same report ranked Carey No. 29 in the world for Corporate Social Responsibility. The report classified Carey as an "elite regional business school," meaning that it is among one of the "younger institutions that, having established an excellent reputation among employers within their region, will be looking to establish their brand as one with a truly global reach."


Carey publishes the ONE Magazine targeting its alumni, students, faculty, and staff. The magazine won a bronze award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) in the category of "College and University General Interest Magazines: Circulation Less than 29,999" in 2011. In April 2014, Carey launched Changing Business, a biannual magazine highlighting faculty research.
