Life in Charm City

Baltimore is one of the country’s oldest, largest, and most diverse cities.

Located in central Maryland on the east coast of the United States, Baltimore sits in the nation’s economic, governmental, cultural, and social center. In this premier location, the city is less than an hour away from Washington, D.C., and a few hours from New York City.

"Going to a business school in the harbor of Baltimore is a unique experience. It feels like a big city but small enough to breathe whenever needed. If you’re a fan of seafood, enjoy walking by the water, and want to have the option to do something fun every day–Charm City is the place to be."
