McDaniel and Johns Hopkins Carey Business School unveil joint degree program

McDaniel College and Johns Hopkins Carey Business School have announced a collaboration to offer a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program, starting in fall 2021. The new 4+1 program will include a bachelor’s degree from McDaniel and a master of science degree in either Finance or Marketing from Carey Business School, which has campuses in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

McDaniel undergraduate students who decide to pursue these new degree options would apply in their junior year and would complete two graduate courses during their senior year.

McDaniel College and Johns Hopkins Carey Business School have announced a collaboration to offer a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program, starting in fall 2021.

The new 4+1 program will include a bachelor’s degree from McDaniel and a master of science degree in either Finance or Marketing from Carey Business School, which has campuses in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

McDaniel undergraduate students who wish to enter the program would apply in their junior year and complete two graduate courses (for four credits) during their senior year. After completing a bachelor’s degree in any undergraduate major from McDaniel, students would begin to earn the remaining 32 credits of the required 36 credits of graduate-level coursework at Johns Hopkins. They would do the work online or at a Carey Business School campus.

Students in the new program will have the opportunity to enhance their graduate degrees with STEM concentrations in Financial Econometrics and Marketing Analytics.

Completing the two graduate courses during their senior year at McDaniel enables students to finish the MS degree program at Carey in two semesters (fall and spring), rather than in the more typical three semesters (fall, spring, and summer).

Julia Jasken, executive vice president and provost at McDaniel, said, “This new partnership with the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School offers our undergraduate students, particularly in our Economics and Business Administration department, the opportunity to earn two degrees in an accelerated timeframe."

"Combining both a McDaniel bachelor’s degree grounded in the liberal arts with a master’s degree in a specialized field from a premier business school truly provides our students the best of both worlds," Jasken said. "We are especially excited to be able to partner with an institution here in Maryland since many of our students are either from, or are looking to remain, in the area after graduation.”

Alexander Triantis, dean of the Carey Business School, said, “We’re pleased to take part in this exciting initiative offering McDaniel students the chance to earn a business degree from Johns Hopkins University. We at Carey look forward to working with the McDaniel community and welcoming their outstanding students in this new undertaking.”
