“The goals of our reimagined program are similar to those of the original program,” says Dean Alexander Triantis of the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. “We want to give minority managers opportunities to gain skills and to build relationships to manage a rapidly diversifying global workforce. The reimagined program provides new courses that will be offered through real-time online sessions, as well as in-person residencies. A key benefit of the program is enabling students to build effective relationships in corporations, small business, government, and non-profit organizations.”
