The W.P. Carey Program in Entrepreneurship and Management (E&M) was created through a gift from businessman and philanthropist, the late William Polk Carey, who believed that, “To be successful, students need educational training in leadership, management, finance, and international issues.”
Today, the E&M program offers Johns Hopkins Arts & Sciences, Engineering, and Peabody students a broad array of courses that emphasize the concepts, practices, and skills necessary for leadership in the public and private sectors.
Some students simply take a course or two. Many choose to fulfill the seven-course E&M minor, pairing it with their engineering, liberal arts, or public health major. The minor’s three core courses–Introduction to Business, Financial Accounting, and Marketing Principles–provide a strong foundation in the fundamentals of entrepreneurial enterprises.
Students can then select any three upper-level courses (plus the required work in statistics) to complete the minor or elect to concentrate further in Accounting and Finance, Business Law, Leadership and Organizational Behavior, or Professional Communication.
The requirements for the E&M minor are outlined below:
Since launching our newest minor, Marketing & Communications, some courses have migrated over. Students who have enrolled prior to Fall 2015 are grandfathered in to our original requirements. Courses that you have taken that are now considered M&C courses will still count towards the E&M minor.
If you have any questions regarding requirements, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is necessary that all students interested in the minor make an appointment to speak with a CLE Academic Program Coordinator to receive guidance about the program.
1. Please complete a E&M Minor Inquiry Form here.
2. Upon submission of the form, email email@example.com to set up a meeting with the Academic Program Coordinator.
2. During the meeting, you will receive a signed “Addition/Change of Minor” slip. Engineering students and Arts & Sciences sophomores and juniors must submit this form to the Office of the Registrar. Arts & Sciences seniors must submit this slip to the Office of Academic Advising.
