The participation of students of diverse nationalities is therefore an essential element of our Global MBA and associated business programs.
The academic distinction of the university has made it a destination for students from across the globe since Johns Hopkins was established in 1876 as the first American research university. The University’s faculty is as diverse in nationality as are our students, and includes hundreds of scholars from around the world. While more than 10 percent of all students enrolled at the University are citizens of nations other than the United States, the goal for enrollment of international students in the charter class of our Global MBA program is far higher.
International perspectives permeate the course of study throughout the Global MBA program, starting with an orientation program that explores the mosaic of world cultures from a business perspective. Students examine how societies organize themselves, how they develop institutional structures, and how they define roles for such institutional bulwarks as government and the public sector, private enterprise, and the media.
The diverse perspectives of international students at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School help to create a shared understanding of the varied dimensions of our global economy.
