We are committed to educating full-time working professionals in a way that meets the demands of their busy schedules. Our online programs allow students to flex their time, but not their standards.

Central to online education at the Carey Business School is the promise that our online students receive the same high level of quality and rigor delivered in-person. Additionally, Carey’s program is designed for maximum flexibility by giving students the option to choose courses both online or in-person. 


The Carey Business School currently offers three degrees online: Flexible MBA, MS in Finance, and MS in Health Care Management. Plans are underway to launch an online MS in Marketing program in Fall 2019. Additionally, two certificates programs are available online: Financial Management and Investments.

Online Experience

Online courses are offered in eight-week terms and feature mostly asynchronous learning activities that may be done at any time. Some courses recommend or require synchronous learning activities that occur in real time. Online courses are as rigorous and high-quality as in-person courses, and online students have access to all university resources available to their in-person counterparts, as well as additional specialized services designed for online learning.

Residency Courses

A strength of the Carey online degree experience is our in-person residency courses. These courses bring together online students from across the globe for two to three days of intensive face-to-face educational and social activities. Students engage in traditional course instruction and network with fellow students (both online and on-ground), faculty, alumni and business leaders.

All residencies are held at Carey Business School’s Harbor East Campus in Baltimore. Students taking the MBA program completely online are required to attend three in-person residencies. Those seeking MS degrees are required to attend one in-person residency. The three online courses offered online with residency components include Business Communication, Leadership in Organizations, and Negotiation. Residencies for Business Communications and Leadership in Organizations are two and a half days each. The Negotiation residency is a day and a half.
