Johns Hopkins’ Carey School of Business to Launch EMBA in May
The Carey School of Business at Johns Hopkins University, which launched its full-time MBA in 2010, will roll out an executive MBA program in May 2011, the Financial Times reports.
According to the FT report, the new Carey EMBA will draw on the expertise of other Hopkins departments, such as medicine and public health, much as the full-time program does. The EMBA will also target a more eclectic student body that other more traditional EMBA programs.
Hopkins hopes to draw this more eclectic student body in part through two unusual projects included as part of the EMBA program. The first, a “Discovery to Market” project, will encourage students to take a scientific discovery from Johns Hopkins University and commercialize it. The second, called “Innovation for Humanity,” is an overseas project designed to give students experience building sustainable businesses in developing markets.
