CREDIT WHERE IT’S DUE
The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School passed another mile marker in February with the exciting news that we had earned accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The AACSB, the global authority on the quality assurance of business education, grants this distinction to less than ve percent of the world’s business school programs.
Gaining AACSB approval is a detailed, multiyear process. Many members of the Carey community worked tirelessly to develop a school that met the AACSB’s rigorous standards and guidelines. When the good news nally arrived, you better believe we were in a mood to celebrate.
A major component of our case to the AACSB was the excellence of our faculty. Indeed, our cohort of researchers and instructors has been one of Carey’s most impressive success stories. The full-time faculty has grown at a remarkable pace, now numbering 87 members; about two-thirds of those hires have been made in the past ve years. The reputation of Carey’s faculty has also grown during that time, with our faculty members earning more than 150 awards and honors related to research, teaching, leadership, and service. What’s more, they have taken part in over 70 collaborations with researchers from other Johns Hopkins divisions.
To sample some of the highly translatable research produced by our faculty, have a look inside this new issue of Changing Business. Relevant business topics are examined here – gender gaps in wages and jobs; organizations that put workers in ethically questionable roles; the overhyped reputations of some large buyout fund groups; the murky world of online product reviews; the management of methadone clinics; and the qualities that earn high marks in employee evaluations.
The work of all our researchers and instructors adheres to the Carey mission of creating business knowledge and educating business leaders who will grow economies and societies. I’m thankful to every member of Carey’s outstanding faculty, as well as our staff and students, for helping us achieve AACSB accreditation, and for embodying the goals and values of our university and our school.
