Who is eligible to register for the bootcamp?

All Johns Hopkins (except Carey Business School) Faculty, Staff, Post-doctoral Fellows, Students and Residents are eligible to register. Currently enrolled students of the Carey Business School may take the available courses already in the catalog and therefore cannot register for the Bootcamp

I don't have an idea to work on. Can I still register?

Yes but you must join a team to participate in the bootcamp. We can assist with the process. Once you join a team, you will be responsible for participating in team activities and team meetings. 

Are there any membership limits on teams?

Yes. We require a minimum of three members on every team to efficiently divide the workload.

How do I register?

Instructions on registering are given here

What is tuition remission? Am I eligible?

Tuition remission is a JHU benefit for Staff and Faculty only. Details on the benefit can be found here. Registered full-time Students do not need to apply for tuition remission as they can take classes for free.

If I am not a student and not eligible for tuition remission, how much does this Bootcamp cost?


Is attendance at all sessions mandatory?

Absolutely. To obtain tuition remission, credits, and/or certificate of completion, you must attend all days, interact with the mentors and complete the required assignment.

Where can I find the course syllabus and readings?

These are available on blackboard.jhu.edu. Once you register for the course, the blackboard site will be visible to you.

What are the credits good for?

The two credits earned in this Bootcamp can be applied to a degree or certificate program at the Carey Business School, should you later choose to enroll.  Note that if you are currently enrolled as a student at Carey, you are not eligible to register for this Bootcamp. 

I am a Carey Business School student. Why can't I take the bootcamp?

The bootcamp is specifically offered for non-registered Carey Students. For Carey Students, there are courses in entrepreneurial ventures, entrepreneurial finance, entrepreneurial marketing, managing teams, Discovery to Market, and so on that you can take. Please check with your academic advisor.
