Carey Business School


Carey Business School

The Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School is one of the academic divisions of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. It is known for its heavy emphasis on part-time education aimed at professionals in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, as well as for its numerous joint degree offerings with other Johns Hopkins schools, principally in the form of double masters programs.

History

The origins of the school can be traced back to 1909, when the "School of Professional Studies in Business and Education" ("SPSBE") was created at Hopkins. Its objective was mainly to serve the educational needs of working professionals, allowing them to complete degrees while maintaining careers. The school evolved from a teacher’s college within the Johns Hopkins University to one of eight major schools in the university. On January 1, 2007, the SPSBE separated into two new schools — the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School and the Johns Hopkins University School of Education. [cite web

This split was engendered by philanthropist William P. Carey's announcement on December 5, 2006 of his donation of $50 million to Johns Hopkins through his own W.P. Carey Foundation. The gift is the largest to Hopkins in support of business education to date, leading the school to be named after William Carey's great-great-great-grandfather, James Carey. James was an 18th- and 19th-century Baltimore shipper, chairman of the Bank of Maryland, a member of Baltimore's first City Council, and a relative of Johns Hopkins.

Initiatives

The Carey School of Business currently is undergoing significant institutional development marked by the appointment of a new Dean, Dr. Yash Gupta, deputized with elevating the stature of the school. Dr. Yash Gupta has indicated that Carey Business School will seek Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation and will aim to join the ranks of first tier institutions. Dean Gupta has been elected to the board of directors of the AACSB. Gupta's three-year term on the governing body of the association will begin July 1, 2008. Notably, the Carey School intends to expand its offerings to both the Bachelor's and Doctoral levels in time, the former policy uncommon amongst leading business schools and the later considered key to bringing about a research culture that the school presently lacks.

Campus

The school has several campus locations on the Baltimore-Washington DC corridor, including:
*The Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins
*Columbia Center in Maryland
*Downtown Baltimore Center, located on the southwest corner of Charles and Fayette streets in the heart of Baltimore's financial district
*Montgomery County Campus
*Washington DC, next to the School of Advanced International Studies and Dupont Circle
