Business at Hopkins intersects every field and is vast, varied, and always changing. Students pursue business from every angle, combining a liberal arts-based education with hands-on experiences. They take versatile courses where they develop their skills, leverage resources, and make valuable connections.
Undergraduates can take a broad array of courses that emphasize the concepts, practices, and skills necessary for leadership in the public and private sectors—preparing them for careers in major corporations, startups, consultancies, government, and more. They leave campus with the ability to learn and think broadly, setting them up to lead in any industry with the agility to be innovative entrepreneurs.

Whether on campus or in Baltimore, undergrads have unprecedented opportunities to position themselves as business leaders and entrepreneurs making an impact on society.

“We are students with a great idea to solve a major social problem, and we’re determined to get funding for our idea...while learning how to effectively communicate and advertise not only our ideas but ourselves.”
— Jenna M. ’20
“I’ve been exposed to way more of the business side than I ever would have imagined...I’ve dealt with invoices, looked at sales revenue data and budgets, worked with the school on policy and branding issues, and sat in on business meetings. My time on HCD [Hopkins Creative Design] so far has taught me an incredible amount about finance and everything surrounding it.”
