The Erickson School @ UMBC began with a vision to educate the next generation of aging services professionals. 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.
