The Erickson School of Aging Studies at UMBC began with a vision to educate the next generation of leaders in the business of longevity. The program – the only one of its kind in the country to combine business management, public policy, and the study of human aging – was designed to meet the real-world demand for educated, innovative leaders in the longevity market.

Our mission is to prepare a community of leaders who will use their education to improve society by enhancing the lives of older adults.

We invite you to learn more about our academic programs, cutting-edge research, and continuing professional development.
