Research Centers, Institutes, & Initiatives
Centralized networks of thought leadership
The Carey Business School faculty are engaged in interdisciplinary, applied research supporting the school’s research mission and identifying business solutions to some of society’s greatest challenges. Our centers and initiatives serve as centralized networks of thought leadership and resources for faculty, students, and the wider community.
Centers, Initiatives, and Institutes also provide unique collaborative spaces for partnerships between industry, government, and academic programs. Together, we can build for what’s next.
Center for Innovative Leadership
The Center for Innovative Leadership (CIL) at the Carey Business School aims to advance knowledge and build capacity for innovative leadership in modern organizations. CIL is a hub for new ideas and insights on leadership, combining faculty-led research, student-facing programming, and community-focused impact.
Center for Digital Health and Artificial Intelligence
The Center for Digital Health and Artificial Intelligence (CDHAI) seeks to create knowledge that will facilitate and accelerate the digital transformation of health care and wider application of unbiased and ethical AI for health. CDHAI works in partnership with the pre-eminent Johns Hopkins ecosystem of institutional assets, including the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering. Affiliated faculty are leading researchers in the technical, analytical, behavioral, and economic aspects of healthcare interventions. CDHAI is also engaged with a wide network of external partners including entrepreneurs, large corporations, and federal and state agencies.
Human Capital Development Lab
The Human Capital Development Lab (HCD Lab) takes a cross-disciplinary focus on key challenges facing human capital leaders around the world. As a development lab, the affiliated faculty strive to bridge the rigor of academic research with the pragmatic needs of business leaders, policy makers, and professional associations. To support this goal, the HCD Lab is actively engaged with external partners, including businesses, associations, and government agencies.
Business in Government
The Business in Government (BIG) initiative brings business research insights to bear on the unique challenges of leading in government and to help government organizations excel and produce insights that can benefit business. As a nonpartisan, faculty-led collaborative, we intend to generate cutting-edge insights about the relevance of “business thinking” for government.
Center for Behavioral and Experimental Agri-Environmental Research
The Center for Behavioral and Experimental Agri-Environmental Research (CBEAR) was established to bring behavioral insights and experimental designs toward improving programs related to agriculture and the environment. The center is an ongoing collaboration between the University of Delaware, Cornell University, and Johns Hopkins University. By using insights from our experiments, we work with policymakers and private institutions to make conservation programs more accessible and sustainable for all communities.
Digital Business Development Initiative
Grounded in the Dulles Tech Corridor and at the Carey Business School campuses in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., the Digital Business Development Initiative aims to advance the research, education, and practice aspects of digital business development, offer a leading network to address the profound impact of digital transformation, and open new paths of opportunity for the future of work in the digital economy.
Hopkins Business of Health Initiative
The Hopkins Business of Health Initiative integrates the scholarship across Johns Hopkins University including the Carey Business School, Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Nursing, and School of Medicine around a shared vision of a healthier America, supported by an affordable and equitable, high-value health system. In pursuit of this vision, our work focuses on the role of business and incentives through rigorous, objective, non-partisan, interdisciplinary research.
