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. Currently, all classes take place at the Baltimore, MD campus location.



Immersive learning and experiential courses create a diverse and thorough learning environment for students. First, students may choose from two pathways: Analytics, Leadership, & Innovation or Health, Technology, & Innovation. After that, the 54 credit-program consists of a foundational week, a comprehensive curriculum of core classes and electives, and 4 experiential learning courses where students gain real world experience.

The revised curriculum similarly accelerates a student’s professional growth trajectory with market-ready skills, networking experiences, and career preparation. During their time in the program, students develop a data-driven approach to problem solving and critical decision making.

At the Carey Business School, the experiential learning isn’t just a teaching method. It is fully integrated and sequentially planned to help students develop analytics and leadership skills. These skills, furthermore, will help students 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. During their first year, each MBA student is paired with a cross-functional team of professional advisors. Meanwhile, the advisory team stays with the students throughout their time at Johns Hopkins to cultivate their executive presence and leadership effectiveness.
