A new way.

Discover the new way in business education: integrated, interdisciplinary, and global. The Johns Hopkins Global MBA redefines the way you look at business education. Our flagship courses, Innovation for Humanity and Discovery to Market, encourage students to use business fundamentals and a hands-on application of business skills to solve some of the most difficult problems facing society today.

Key Program Features:

  • Two-year, 54-credit degree program
  • Strong focus on impact and accountability of business to society
  • Small cohort size allows for personalized attention from faculty and career staff as well as opportunities for networking and relationship building with fellow students

Business can be better.

While we teach the fundamentals of business, we strive to expose students to something much bigger. Through flagship courses like Innovation for Humanity and Discovery to Market, we challenge students to put their business skills to work to solve some of the most difficult problems facing society today.

Innovation for Humanity

  • Use business learning, individual skills, and collaborative thinking to gain valuable experience and tackle real-life challenges
  • Intensive 3-week international residency experience
  • Small team project planning, data analysis and reporting

Discovery to Market

  • Work alongside inventors, scientists, and entrepreneurs to transform an emerging technology from brand new to new brand
  • Collaborate with students and faculty from other schools within the Johns Hopkins University to assess societal value of new discoveries and innovative technologies
  • Develop a detailed plan for bringing discoveries to market—and profitability

In the middle of it all.

Located in the state-of-the-art Legg Mason Tower overlooking Baltimore’s thriving Harbor East neighborhood, the Global MBA program offers students the opportunity to interact with business leaders from around the region, while taking advantage of the nationally-renowned fine dining, entertainment, and retail spots.

More importantly, Baltimore’s close proximity to Washington, D.C., and New York City offers students easy access to government and international institutions like the IMF, World Bank, U.S. Congress, and the United Nations, as well as Fortune 500 companies and Wall Street.

Study with a diverse group of students.
