Application Process and Requirements
Because we are kicking off the inaugural class for the Global MBA, we do not have any employment data available yet for this program. However, we have a strong, dedicated Career Services team that has already been working hard on building relationships with domestic and international recruiters to help students find summer internships and full-time employment. So far, we have received very positive feedback from major multi-national firms on the quality and strength of our program and they have a keen interest in our graduates. We expect to have very good recruiting results.
Johns Hopkins has been offering business programs for many years. Although the Carey Business School has only existed as such since 2007, there are over 150,000 Hopkins alumni around the world and therefore a connection to the school. Our offices of Alumni Relations and Career Services have been working closely together to proactively connect with alumni in target organizations in order to establish corporate ties with these organizations. Our alumni have been extremely receptive to providing assistance to current and future Carey Business School students.
In addition, our Corporate Advisory Board is comprised of senior leadership from top-tier companies, which means they support the mission of the program and are willing to partner with us to provide resources for students.
Some interested companies include IBM, Microsoft, Eli Lily, DLA Piper, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Booz Allen Hamilton, and more.
Application Process and Requirements
There is no minimum work requirement.
The earlier the better. Scholarship funding decreases throughout the recruiting season.
All applicants must submit their GMAT score. There are no exceptions nor substitutes.
Because the Global MBA is taught entirely in English and requires strong oral and written communications skills, we need evidence of sufficient English language skills. The TOEFL test is one way we can test this, but it is not the only way. If you are unsure whether you should take the TOEFL, please contact us at email@example.com.
Yes, you can send your documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can send unofficial copies of transcripts by fax or email before we receive the official copy. However, you can only be conditionally admitted until we receive your official documents. Admission is contingent upon us receiving the official documents.
We have strong faculty body and are continuing to recruit faculty members from the best research programs to increase breadth and depth. The faculty teaching MBA classes at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School bring many years of teaching and research experience, as well as strong academic credentials from leading U.S. universities such as University of Chicago, Carnegie Mellon and MIT.
The Johns Hopkins University is an entrepreneurial environment with a tradition of collaboration across university divisions. In this spirit of collaboration, Carey Business School students have the opportunity to study with faculty across the university, including the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and the Schools of Engineering, Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, Arts and Sciences, and Advanced International Studies.
We use an integrated teaching method that combines lectures, cases, projects, seminars and group work. Students will be exposed to professors from different disciplines and learn from a variety of teaching methods.
During your two-year MBA experience, you will have a chance to get involved in various community service initiatives organized by the Carey Business School or the Johns Hopkins University. At the Carey Business School, you can participate in the existing student clubs, such as Net Impact Chapter, whose mission is to make a positive impact on society, or establish a new student organization. At JHU, there are more than 56 existing student clubs and organizations that have focus on humanity and community service, and that are affiliated with the Center for Social Concern. See the complete list here.
We strongly encourage MBA students to learn about these opportunities and get involved with those that are relevant to their professional and personal needs and interests, as well as relevant to the overall goals of the Global MBA program.
The Discovery to Market project provides the students with the understanding of the nature of intellectual property, scientific discovery, innovative technologies, processes and devices, and their value from both the scientific and commercial standpoints. During Phase I, the students develop the skills to assess the commercial potential and viability of a scientific discovery. During Phase II, the students complete the process of taking discovery to market by assessing the marketplace, identifying commercial needs, developing business plans and working on initial implementation.
During the project, the students will work in teams of 4-6, engaging with the scientists and inventors, within Hopkins as well as with the organizations outside of Hopkins system. Carey Business Schools works closely with the office of Johns Hopkins Technology Transfer (JHTT) whose mission is to bring the benefits of discovery to the world, by implementing the commercialization of university inventions for the public good. The projects will be located in Maryland – DC area, since the projects assume a very high level of interaction between the scientists and the students. The specific projects that students will be involved in will be finalized before the beginning of the Spring 2011 semester. See examples of the technologies currently available or going through evaluation process at Johns Hopkins University.
The innovative Global MBA program at the Carey Business School is designed with a global perspective in mind. That includes educating future business leaders to understand the global marketplace, the major issues and challenges that the global community is facing, the driving forces that define shifts in customer behavior and needs, bring new opportunities and allow business leaders to build successful businesses while helping the society. The global focus of the program is reflected in the overall structure of the program, including such courses as Thought and Discourse seminars, People and Markets, Innovation for Humanity, and others; selection of a very diverse group of faculty-experts; selection of the topics and business cases to be incorporated in the program; and focus on cultural diversity and skills needed by the future to manage and communicate across borders.

We expect students to pursue a summer internship that will enable them to apply the skills developed during the first year of the program. The career services office will work with you to ensure that your summer is spent on a substantive and meaningful assignment, whether it is an internship in the corporate office environment or a social entrepreneurship opportunity.
The detailed course descriptions will be available and provided to the Global MBA candidates in May-June 2010.

The evening hours are planned for the team projects, research and library visits, self-preparation, and student extra-curriculum activities. For the candidates who live outside of Baltimore, it is important to plan your arrangements with the understanding that the full time MBA program assumes a very high level of interaction and communication between MBA candidates, faculty, and students from other parts of the university, outside of the scheduled classes.
A number of Carey Business School faculty members employ research assistants. The number of Research Assistant opportunities available for the Global MBA students will depend on faculty demand and student capability. With respect to practical experience, a number of courses will include term projects, such as Discovery to Market project, which will allow students to work on real world problems.
There are also Teaching Assistant opportunities options, which will be offered based on the specific needs of the Carey Business School professors, the class size, and other factors. If you are interested in RA or TA opportunities, you will have a chance to discuss it with Carey Business School professors.
At this time, there are no joint degrees, but they may be established in the future.
