Johns Hopkins University announced the formation of a new School of Business and School of Education after receiving a $50 million gift from W. P. Carey through the W. P. Carey Foundation. (The Carey Business School will be the second Carey Business School. The University of Arizona’s Business School is also named for Carey)
A few other interesting tidbits about the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School:
- It will launch with a total of $100 million in funding. The Carey gift is to be matched by another $50 million in gifts, some of which have already been pledged.
- The business school will build on Hopkins impressive strength in health care and joint programs offering combined master’s/MBA programs in biotechnology, public health and nursing. Look for more innovative programming focusing on healthcare and business.
- Carey also plans to offer a five-year B.A.-B.S./MBA option for liberal arts and engineering majors from the university’s undergraduate programs.
