This past year saw an ever-expanding web of connections linking the young Carey Business School and the three East Baltimore schools:
- The introduction of a new certificate program in the Business of Health Care, a joint venture of Carey and the schools of Nursing, Medicine, and Public Health that offers formal business training to leaders in medicine and health care;
- The expansion of the executive education program known as Transforming Health Systems for Accountable Care, the first inter-professional executive education program for accountable care in the United States, with the goal of helping health care professionals navigate change in the U.S. health care system;
- The launch of a new entrepreneurship boot camp, a collaboration of the Carey Business School, the School of Medicine, and the School of Nursing to provide the knowledge and skills needed to turn raw ideas into business proposals;
- The arrival of Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Kathleen Sutcliffe, one of the world’s leading scholars on how to design organizations to be more reliable and resilient, and the first dual primary appointment between Carey and one of the East Baltimore schools. All said, Carey has recruited 26 full-time faculty with core competencies in a health-related area.
All these efforts share a common thread: They seek to leverage each of the manifold strengths and talents of Carey and the East Baltimore schools, and in so doing, amplify the mission and the impact of them all.
