Carey Business School to launch Global MBA at stock exchange

After many months of preparation, the Carey Business School will officially unveil its signature full-time program, the Johns Hopkins Global MBA, at a gala event to be held Oct. 21 at the New York Stock Exchange.

About 325 invited guests are expected to attend, including foreign dignitaries, representatives of the national media, Johns Hopkins alumni from the New York area and full-time faculty and staff of the business school. Scheduled to speak at the event are university Provost Lloyd B. Minor, Carey Dean Yash Gupta and Dipankar Chakravarti, professor and vice dean for programs at the Carey School, who will narrate a presentation detailing the Global MBA.

The hourlong program will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the main dining room of the stock exchange and will be viewable as streaming video on the Carey Business School Web site, http://carey.jhu.edu. The attendees will then gather for a cocktail reception on the stock exchange floor.

The first class of the Johns Hopkins Global MBA will enter the program in September 2010.
