Carey Foundation Awards $25 Million to Johns Hopkins Business School

Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore has announced a $25 million gift from the W.P. Carey Foundation in support of its business school.

Established in 2007 with a $50 million gift from the foundation, the Carey Business School will use the gift to recruit faculty members, enhance academic programs, launch student careers, and establish the James Carey Distinguished Professorships.

The school recently completed a comprehensive redesign of its full-time MBA curriculum, which includes Health, Technology, and Innovation as one of two pathways of study for students. Students who choose the track, which capitalizes on the university's leadership in medicine, nursing, public health, and advanced biotechnology, will have the opportunity to explore technology-driven human-centered solutions to complex health challenges and complete experiential courses and co-curricular activities in a broad range of health-related fields.

"On behalf of the W.P. Carey Foundation, we are proud to build on our investment in Johns Hopkins Carey Business School with today's gift," said the foundation's chair, William P. Carey II. "This support will help fulfill my great-uncle Bill Carey's vision of educating leaders who can have a transformative impact in Baltimore, Maryland, nationally, and globally. As a long-term partner, it is the foundation's goal that this support will ensure Carey Business School continues to be a world-class institution in the years ahead."
