One of the newest schools of its kind in the world, the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School was established in 2007 with a gift of $50 million from Trustee Emeritus Wm. Polk Carey.  The school draws upon the strengths of other Johns Hopkins schools, including the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, Whiting School of Engineering, and Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. 

The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School shares the Johns Hopkins University’s dedication to improving lives on a global scale by addressing pivotal societal issues, including health, poverty, education, and environmental sustainability through rigorous research and education. This means the transformation of business education, and repurposing the traditional business school toolkit to reflect our principles of humanity, compassion, innovation, and opportunity. The world needs leaders who understand how business shapes the future and influences our behavior across industries, continents, and cultures.

The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School teaches business with humanity in mind.
