Carey Business School’s Executive Education Program Shares Insights and Innovations with Industry Peers

“Carey Business School was selected to host this year’s UNICON Team Development Conference in part because of the contributions of Johns Hopkins in efforts to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to developing practical solutions for diagnostic testing and therapeutics for COVID, the Johns Hopkins Global COVID Tracking Dashboard continues to provide real-time data on the pandemic’s spread and mitigation, which has become an invaluable resource for policymakers and news organizations around the world.

“The pandemic fundamentally shifted how executive education operates with many schools having to quickly move their executive education courses online,” said Rick Smith, vice dean for education and partnerships at Carey Business School. “Since the start of the pandemic, Johns Hopkins has become a world-renowned authority on the COVID-related issues, which created a unique opportunity to let Carey Business School and the UNICON membership rethink our business at this time.”

Chris Myers, associate professor, and academic director of executive education at Carey Business School, facilitated each session of the three-day conference and helped frame each presentation with an emphasis on sustainability, flexibility, and adaptability.”.
