Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates for Prospective Students

Johns Hopkins Carey Business School is moving all of its in-person courses scheduled for the fall 2020 semester (Fall I and Fall II terms) to a remote-live synchronous (remote-live) format. This will include activities planned for Foundations Week/Orientation and residencies associated with some online part-time courses. Additional information will be communicated directly to students according to their programs. 

Our first priority is ensuring the utmost safety of our students, faculty, and staff. This decision was made because of continued uncertainty surrounding potential local health restrictions, as well as U.S. immigration policy and other travel restrictions. Additionally, we consulted with leading health experts from across Johns Hopkins University to inform our decision. While many students expressed their preference for in-person instruction in the fall, a much larger number indicated they would be unable to attend in-person or wanted to study remotely.  

We are taking every measure to ensure that our remote-live courses create a rich and rewarding learning experience for our students. We have invested in new “classroom studio” technology so that faculty can adapt their courses and lesson plans to provide the best educational experience possible.
