About the Student Success Center
The Student Success Center offers current Johns Hopkins Carey Business School students free assistance with core classes through appointments with our academic consultants. All Carey students are allowed to make up to 10 appointments with academic consultants during their time at Carey. The Student Success Center’s goals are to help students develop their own reading, writing, analytical, and quantitative abilities to become skilled critical thinkers of their own work in both academic and professional settings.
