MBA/MS in Applied Economics


Program features

Online, onsite, or both

This dual degree offers students flexibility, allowing them to take courses online, on-site in Baltimore or Washington D.C., or a combination of both.

Multidisciplinary and efficient

This dual degree harnesses the complementary nature of business and economics and eliminates the overlap between the MS in Applied Economics and the MBA, enabling students to earn both degrees in fewer courses.

Two degrees

Earn two degrees from two Johns Hopkins schools: an MBA from Carey Business School and an MS in Applied Economics from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.

Eight in-demand specializations

Although not required, you can choose from eight in-demand specializations from a diverse group of focus areas.


The Johns Hopkins Master of Business Administration/Master of Science in Applied Economics equips students to excel in careers blending business and economics. 

The 2022 edition of the Carey Business School University Catalog is available.
