Admissions policies

Candidates cannot apply for more than one program in a single round.

If offered admission, you must accept or decline by the deadline for that round. You cannot wait to make a decision on a first offer while applying for another program in the next round.

Work experience

Work experience is not required in order to be accepted into the program. However, work experience may be required to be eligible for a GRE or GMAT exam waiver.

Admissions to other schools in the University

If you are a Carey Business School student who wishes to transfer to one of the other schools in the university (such as Engineering, Public Health, or Peabody), you are required to submit an admission application to that school. Admission to the Carey Business School establishes no claim or priority for admission to any other school in the university. Students interested in dual degree programs (programs that combine degrees from multiple Johns Hopkins schools or Johns Hopkins and one of our partner institutions) should visit our dual degree page for instructions on how to apply.
