Johns Hopkins Carey Business School has extended its accreditation through AACSB International (AACSB) for another five years. AACSB is the world’s largest business education alliance. Accreditation through AACSB is considered a hallmark of excellence and associated with achieving the highest standards in business education.
Carey Business School earned its initial AACSB accreditation in 2017, 10 years after the school was established. Since its initial accreditation, Carey Business School reimagined its full-time MBA program with increased emphasis on developing analytical and leadership skills for students. The program also includes two specialized pathways of study: one in health, technology, and innovation, and another in analytics, leadership, and innovation. It is also one of the few full-time MBA programs to require a course in artificial intelligence. A large component of the reimagined MBA curriculum included the expansion of experiential learning courses, which was recently honored by MBA Roundtable with a 2021 Innovator Award for General Excellence.
Carey Business School also revamped its part-time Flexible MBA program by revising the core curriculum, introducing several new specialized areas of study, and adding greater flexibility for completing the program through online courses. Annual enrollment in the program has more than doubled over the past five years.
Carey has also recently developed STEM-designated curricula of its full-time MS in Finance, MS in Marketing, MS in Information Systems, and MS Business Analytics and Risk Management degree programs, which provide the most rigorous learning opportunities for students. Carey’s non-degree Executive Education program has greatly expanded over the past five years, including the establishment of executive education academies focused on Emerging Leadership, Health Care Leadership, and Women in Leadership.
