You may know Johns Hopkins as the leading name in medical education and research. From the university’s founding as America’s first research university to being a global leader through the COVID-19 pandemic, Johns Hopkins has been synonymous with health. But it’s not just a passion for health; it’s a relentless drive for innovation that defines the Johns Hopkins legacy. Whether you’re looking to lead in the business of health or find the next analytics-driven breakthrough, Johns Hopkins Carey Business School has a spot for you. And because we are a relatively young school with a startup, entrepreneurial mindset situated inside the university that revolutionized higher education in the U.S., you get the best of both worlds.
We bring this innovative mindset to our curriculum— adding classes, increasing experiential learning opportunities, and evolving so that our curriculum equips you with the skills that tomorrow’s employers demand. We built our full-time Johns Hopkins MBA on a foundation of business analytics and the leadership skills you need to thrive as a business leader.
When you begin your Johns Hopkins MBA, you will choose from two pathways: Analytics, Leadership, and Innovation or the Health, Technology, and Innovation.
Analytics, Leadership, and Innovation
What will drive the next decade of business? Understanding the application of business analytics alone won’t drive innovation. You’ll also need the leadership skills to engage, lead, and negotiate with the people around you to implement data-driven strategies. You need to harness the power of data. Otherwise, you run the risk of perpetuating ineffective or ill-informed strategies. In the Analytics, Leadership, and Innovation pathway, discover the powerful synergy between analytics and leadership to navigate the fast-moving market.
Health, Technology, and Innovation
From shifting government regulations to innovative health technologies and increased competition, the business of health is constantly changing. Because the challenges of modern health care are too complex to address with traditional models, leaders need specialized knowledge to implement change. In the Health, Technology, and Innovation pathway, find technology-driven, human-centered solutions to complex health problems.
Capitalize on Carey Business School’s unique position in Johns Hopkins’ world-renowned health ecosystem.
