The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School has added seven full-time faculty members at the start of the 2019-2020 academic year, bringing the school’s total number of full-time faculty to 106.
This represents growth of nearly 300 percent since the 2011-2012 year, when the full-time faculty at Carey comprised about 35 members.
“The Carey Business School faculty continues to grow not only in number but also in the quality, energy, experience, and potential of its members,” says Alex Triantis, who arrived in August 2019 as the new dean of the Carey School. “With these new appointees, we will keep building on the foundation of outstanding research and instruction that our school has established over the past decade.”
The seven new faculty members – one who is tenured, three in the research track, and three in the practice track -- earned their doctorates and other advanced degrees at institutions such as Stanford University, the University of California at Los Angeles, the University of North Carolina, the University of Chicago, Cornell University, the University of Florida, and the Toyohashi University of Technology.
Among them is Matthew Kahn, the latest Johns Hopkins Bloomberg Distinguished Professor appointed to the Carey Business School. An expert in urban and environmental economics, Kahn was also appointed to the university’s Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. The Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships, established in 2014, were made possible by a $350 million gift from university alumnus Michael Bloomberg. Their aim is to promote interdisciplinary scholarship across Johns Hopkins.
Kahn is the fourth Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at Carey, joining Kathleen Sutcliffe, Paul Ferraro, and Daniel Polsky. Kahn earned his PhD in economics from the University of Chicago. Previously he was a professor of economics and the chairman of the economics department at the University of Southern California.
