Johns Hopkins Carey Business School - Johns Hopkins MBA

Johns Hopkins MBA Program Structure

At Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, our redesigned MBA sets the new standard for a modern business degree. New technology has upended nearly every industry. Businesses are evolving to embrace cutting-edge tech, adopting an entrepreneurial sense of agility, and learning to thrive within change. A business degree program must do the same. So, we re-imagined our MBA for modern business students. Business is evolving, so are we. Join us in building better businesses, stronger communities, and improved industries. Together, we build for what’s next.

The full-time MBA program is a two-year program held at the Baltimore, Md. campus location.


The revised curriculum accelerates a student’s professional growth trajectory with market-ready skills, networking experiences, and career preparation. Students develop a data-driven approach to problem solving and critical decision making.

But leadership and business instincts aren’t taught in a textbook, they are learned by doing. Our MBA emphasizes experiential learning courses, providing students with applied learning opportunities to put their skills to the test and consult for global business leaders.
At the Carey Business School, our experiential learning isn’t just a teaching method. It is fully integrated and sequentially planned, so that students build analytic and leadership skills to engage in increasingly challenging experiential learning courses throughout their MBA program.

The student experience culminates in the Innovation Field Project in year two when all MBA students partner with an outside business and spend five weeks planning and three weeks embedded onsite to provide insightful business solutions, translate analytic findings, and present data-driven and actionable business recommendations.

With analytic training, leadership skills, and experience solving cutting-edge business problems, students graduate ready to advance in their careers. In the first year, each MBA student is paired with a cross-functional team of professional advisors inside and outside of Johns Hopkins. The advisory team stays with the students throughout their time at Johns Hopkins to cultivate their executive presence and leadership effectiveness.
