Carey Mentoring Program

The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School’s offices of Development and Alumni Relations and Career Development facilitate two dedicated mentorship programs serving students in the first-year Global MBA program and underrepresented minority students enrolled in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and online. The goal of these programs is to enhance Carey students’ career development through one-on-one relationships with alumni mentors who share their time, experience, and professional and industry insights.
