Carey Business School – Johns Hopkins University

Johns Hopkins Global MBA Program Structure

The Johns Hopkins Global MBA program at Carey Business School offers primarily daytime and evening classes at the Baltimore campus. Carey offers one intake per year, and classes begin during the fall semester. During the summer between the first and second years of the program, students take part in a three-week Innovation for Humanity program, traveling to different countries across the globe to work collaboratively with local entrepreneurs and community leaders.

Curriculum

The Johns Hopkins Global MBA requires 54 credit hours of coursework, comprised of 38 credit hours of core classes and 16 elective credits. During the first semester, core business disciplines are taught end-to-end 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.

Before entering the second year of the program, students are expected to participate in the Innovation for Humanity program. An international learning opportunity that draws on Johns Hopkins University’s unique international presence, students get first-hand experience working in new markets to come up with solutions to actual problems the people living in these countries face. For example, students may work on finding business solutions to problems involving public health or poverty. Past trips have included Rwanda, Peru and India. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in a Discovery to Market project, a unique entrepreneurial program that gives global MBA students the chance to participate in transforming a scientific discovery into a viable commercial enterprise. Students collaborate with Johns Hopkins researchers, physicians, engineers, and public health experts to determine if the product or technology is a promising business opportunity.

Students choose electives from six areas of concentration: Financial Businesses, Health Care Management, Real Estate and Infrastructure, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and Enterprise Risk Management.
