The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School officially launched the Johns Hopkins Global MBA program on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the New York Stock Exchange. More than 300 Johns Hopkins and Carey Business School alumni, donors, students, faculty and staff, as well as prominent members of the New York area’s corporate community, attended the event. The school is poised to start recruitment of the program’s charter class for its fall 2010 launch.

Above, Carey School Dean Yash Gupta addresses those in attendance, inviting his audience to participate in an “incredible journey” as the Global MBA prepares to “break the mold” of past enterprises and redefine the nature and workings of a business education to address today’s diverse and unprecedented global social, economic, health and environmental challenges.

At the presentation’s conclusion, guests were invited to adjourn to a reception on the stock exchange’s iconic trading floor. —Andrew Blumberg
