Johns Hopkins Masters in Finance Update – March 2020

Carey School of Business

It has been a while since I posted an update on the Johns Hopkins Masters in Finance program and there is a bunch to update all of you on. This is great program with a bunch of features to satisfy a wide range of students and the schools reputation and world wide recognition is a huge selling point. For the last handful of years, Johns Hopkins is one of the most read about programs on my site and I think the aforementioned reasons are a big driver of this.

2019 Class Profile

These class profiles are a great way to see how you measure up compared to your fellow classmates. I also enjoy comparing them year after year to see how programs change their class make up. JHU has been rather consistent over the years, something that I consider to be a good sign.

  • Average GMAT – 689
  • Average GPA – 3.51
  • International – 99%
  • Male / Female – 36% / 64%

Some take aways. Strong scores for both the GMAT and GPA. I am surprised how international the full time program is (part time program in DC is more domestic). What really jumps out at me is the fact that women are the dominant majority. This is pretty much unheard of and a great thing for women’s equality. Nice to see a finance program that isn’t nearly all male. Good job!

Career Outcomes

The website has some placement information based on the 2017-2018 class. I’d love to see something more robust, but this is pretty good and will give you an idea of where students go once they graduate. What is more important, in my opinion, is this will give you an idea of where to reach out when you are networking and trying to get into the interview cycle.

  • 72% of graduates accepted a position within 6 months of graduating
  • $70,571 was the average salary

Here is a grid with the specific employment data:

In addition to the above information, the Johns Hopkins Masters program includes a sample of where MSF students receive employment from. This isn’t a full list, but I think it is helpful all the same.

  • Citibank
  • Comerica
  • Deloitte Consulting
  • Freddie Mac
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Morgan Stanley
  • United Nations
  • Argus
  • China Development Bank
  • China Merchants Bank
  • China Securities International
  • FinTech4Good
  • Ivy Mortgage
  • PriceWaterhouse Coopers (PwC)


Round 1 and 2 have passed, but there is still plenty of time to apply for round 3. Applications are due April 1, 2020. Admissions will get back to students who apply by April 29th. Tuition for the program has increased slightly and is no $71,600.

Lots of good things going on with the Johns Hopkins Masters in Finance program. STEM certified, part time and full time options, and classes in Baltimore and Washington DC. So many options for students to choose from. I’ll do an update on the part time options as well as I think different students tend to have interest in this program (more experienced professionals vs. fresh graduates. Check back soon!
