Student Experience

With one semester down and three to go, W. P. Carey Executive MBA student Canden Baker is more than satisfied with her experience in the program thus far. She has been able to balance school with her work and family life, due in large part to the high-touch, personalized services afforded to her by the W. P. Carey School of Business.

Finance, accounting, and tax have a longstanding legacy in businesses of all shapes and sizes, but it’s no secret the business world is changing. &nbsp;According to the <em>Journal of Accountancy</em></a>, businesses are looking to finance and related functions to help navigate these new changes and complexity. And while this puts them in an “enviable position of influence […] increased skills are needed to meet additional responsibilities.”

Choosing a city to launch your career and build your life in is kind of a big deal. Luckily, the city the W. P. Carey School calls home has been ranked 16th among the 25 best cities and neighborhoods for young people, No. 43 in Livability’s Top 100 Best Places to Live, the 12th most magnetizing city for millennials, and the 5th best college town in the United States.


If The Lego Movie taught us anything, it’s that everything is awesome; everything is cool when you’re part of a team. Students in the W. P. Carey Executive MBA program recently learned this firsthand in Professor Mohan Gopalakrishnan’s Operations and Supply Chain Management course.
