The scholarship enterprise refers to the individuals, resources and activities devoted to the discovery, dissemination, and application of scientific knowledge in the field of business and its related disciplines. The focus of the Enterprise and its intended outcomes is consistent with the belief that innovation begins with critical thinking and creativity, and our unflinching desire to make a difference in the world. The scholarship enterprise is tightly linked to the educational enterprise of the School and its stakeholder-centered approach to delivering world class services.
The Carey Business School breaks the mold in business scholarship through an intellectual platform that enables talent, knowledge, skills and expertise from the disciplines across the Johns Hopkins University and peer business schools to participate in state-of the-art business scholarship. The scholarship enterprise at Carey leverages on the traditional academic strengths of Johns Hopkins University by promoting and rewarding, without prejudice to other areas of inquiry, cross disciplinary research that address globally important societal issues such as health, poverty, and sustainability through the theoretical lenses and practical experience of the business related disciplines.
In accordance with the School’s mission statement, our approach to scholarship is entrepreneurial and characterized by humility and flexibility.
The stated goals of the scholarship enterprise are achieved primarily through research and practice track faculty. We continually identify, recruit and support world class faculty in identified priority research areas. We will not be very large in numbers but will have the critical mass to specific areas of inquiry to establish a global footprint for world class intellectual output. Each of the priority areas of inquiry is anchored by a research center with a clearly articulated intellectual framework capable of attracting talent, knowledge, skills and expertise from many disciplines and professions. Finally, the Scholarship Enterprise at the Carey Business School is a dynamic endeavor. As such we periodically define and propose new research priority areas for the School while de-emphasizing or eliminating research priorities that cease to be important.
