Opened Fall 2023

While the renovations continue, the future of Johns Hopkins Carey Business School in Washington, D.C., is getting brighter. Applications are now open for the four full-time master’s degree programs, for study at the fully renovated 555 Penn, beginning fall 2023.

Held in the former Newseum building at 555 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, classes will begin in August of that year for master’s degrees in Business Analytics and Risk Management, Finance, Information Systems, and Real Estate and Infrastructure. The D.C. location means any Washington-area individual considering an advanced degree in these business specializations can gain the advantage of a Johns Hopkins education in-person, in an accessible, invigorating place, without having to commute to Baltimore.

Location, location, location

The full-time programs themselves are mainstays of the Carey Business School program portfolio, currently housed in the stately Embassy Row area of 17th St. and Massachusetts Avenue, NW. Students currently enrolled in the programs will continue their study at that Embassy Row location. Those who enroll for fall 2023 will head to 555 Penn, a 420,000-square-foot, fully renovated building designed to be flexible, at the foot of Capitol Hill. It’s within half a mile of three major D.C. Metro stops, and less than a mile from two more.

"Since 2007, a Johns Hopkins Carey Business School degree has attracted students from all over the world, and advanced our graduates on global pathways to success,” says Carey Dean Alexander J. Triantis. “This new D.C. home offers our master's students not only a strategic location, but education in a facility with a unique learning environment, strong connection to other Johns Hopkins University schools, and great amenities."

A uniquely designed opportunity

What makes it unique? Innovative learning space, capable of dynamic configurations for classroom learning, events, solo or group study, and even collaborative engagement with students, researchers and business leaders. It puts students in proximity to the kinds of interaction that fuel curiosity and advancement in every sense.

What to Read Next

Amenities include a stacked library, street-level retail, a coffee shop, a fitness center and wellness center open to all Carey Business School students, multimedia studios, lounges and common areas, and roof terraces with those iconic, only-in-D.C. views.

Plus, since other Hopkins schools and programs will share the space, the potential for collaboration is powerful.

“The renovated building will provide opportunities for every academic division of the university to pursue research and educational activities in Washington,” says Johns Hopkins University President Ron Daniels, “complementing and drawing on those conducted on our flagship Baltimore campuses and deepening our connections to debates over national and global policy. Our commitment to contributing our ideas and expertise to these debates lies at the core of what it means to be a vital and relevant university.”

Programs from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and the Johns Hopkins Krieger School of Arts and Sciences Advanced Academic Programs will also be available at 555 Penn.
