Empowering Female Students
Did you know that nearly 50% of students at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School are women? Shelby Schemerhorn, GMBA 2018, shares how the equal representation of women drove her decision to come to the Carey Business School.
I wanted to go to a business school that was similar to how I started my career and where I could find the purpose that would motivate me and would give me the hard skills training that I needed to go into management,“ said Schemerhorn. “For me, Carey was the best blend of all the business acumen that I needed for that next step in my career. I’ve always been very social-impact focused so it was the perfect blend of both those things.”
Schemerhorn says she was initially drawn to Carey by the school’s mission and curriculum, but she was also pleased to find that women were well represented throughout the school. According to the latest figures, 47 percent of Carey’s students are women.
