Johns Hopkins MBA Rankings: A Comprehensive Overview
The Johns Hopkins name carries quite a bit of clout in the academic world.
Known for being the premier research university of the Baltimore Metro and the first of its kind in the nation, Johns Hopkins University — commonly known as Hopkins or JHU — is made up of two undergraduate divisions, a Medical Institutions campus, the Peabody Institute Conservatory of Music, the Applied Physics Laboratory, the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, the education school, and, of course, the Carey Business School, among various other facilities
Johns Hopkins University Rankings
In U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges” rankings, JHU ranked No. 10. Things have been trending up for JHU in recent years — the university was ranked 16th as recently as a decade ago.
The U.S. News rankings are based on three types of data: quality assessment from dean and director surveys, statistical indicators that measure employment salary and placement success, and student selectivity.

Johns Hopkins MBA Rankings (Carey School)
The accolades don’t stop there. Specifically, the Carey Business School has also been recognized as a standout institution of higher learning. In addition to the U.S. News & World Report rankings, the QS Global 200 MBA Rankings 2014/15 for North America ranked Carey as No. 64 in the continent.
According to Quacquarelli Symonds, 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.”
In 2013, the Eduniversal Business School Palm League Rankings deemed the Carey Business School as the 5th ranked institution nationally in its 4 Palms of Excellence category, which is reserved for “top business schools with significant international influence.”
“At Johns Hopkins, we are committed to nurturing the best young minds in an environment that prizes intellectual creativity, discovery, and service to our world,” President Ronald J. Daniels said in an online statement following the release of the U.S. News & World Report rankings.
Johns Hopkins University added business and engineering courses to a separate division of the university in 1916. At first, collegiate-level instruction was only offered to students part-time. Fast forward 90 years to 2006, where Johns Hopkins University trustees, in response to a $50 million gift from William Polk Carey, voted to establish a new business school dedicated to producing innovative leaders with broad, interdisciplinary knowledge. The new Carey Business School opened January 1, 2007. Today, a century after JHU began offering business courses, Carey offers a full-time traditional MBA in addition to the part-time Professional MBA and Executive MBA.
The Carey Business School’s reach stretches from Baltimore to Washington, D.C. — the D.C. campus on Massachusetts Avenue is located blocks away from many embassies and government offices, and the state-of-the-art Harbor East flagship campus on the Baltimore harbor is located just off of the Jones Falls Expressway.
