Carey to hold info session on ‘global immersion’ course

The Carey Business School will hold an online information session at noon on Thursday, May 17, for a “global immersion” course the school will offer next fall and winter in Baltimore and Quito, Ecuador.

Open to Johns Hopkins graduate students interested in learning how business competitiveness is developed on an international scale, the two-credit course will consist of three sessions at Carey’s Harbor East campus in Baltimore (Oct. 27 and 30, and Nov. 1) and a one-week residency in Quito (Jan. 6 to 12). The class size will be limited to 25 students.

Magdalena Barreiro, dean of the business school at Universidad San Francisco de Quito and a former minister of economy and finance in Ecuador, will serve as instructor. She is expected to participate in Thursday’s information session.
