Carey Business School Overview

Funded by a $50 million gift from businessman William Polk Carey, the Carey Business School initiated its operations guided by a simple yet essential mission: to teach business with humanity in mind.
The School has come a long way since its launch. FY17 operating revenue, net of student financial aid, was $79 million. The full-time faculty has grown to 94 and the staff has grown to 170, supporting a student body that has grown to 2,200. The School is solidly profitable, has built a $44 million reserve and has grown it’s endowment to $22 million.
The School is focused on full-time and part-time graduate business education. It offers both MBA and MS programs in a wide variety of academic disciplines. Its part-time offerings include both in-classroom as well as online modalities.
The School’s primary location is in the Legg Mason tower in Baltimore’s Harbor East, where the school leases 147,000 square feet of space for classrooms, offices and school activities. The School has a secondary location in Washington DC where it leases 27,000 square feet for classrooms and offices.
