Student Experience

We like to say that the W. P. Carey School is where business is personal®. It means a lot to us and it also means a lot of different things. For example, we emphasize smaller class sizes, because it fosters relationships with your fellow students, who also become vital teammates as you work through the program.

The W. P. Carey School of Business is honored to sponsor Forté Foundation, a nonprofit consortium of corporations and top business schools working together to pioneer change for women in business. Forté helps launch women into fulfilling and significant careers in business, through access to business education, career opportunities, and a community of successful women.

There are different kinds of business schools. Some foster a more competitive environment; the thinking is that it prepares you for the rough-and-tumble real world. There are some that have massive lecture courses with hundreds of students. There are b-schools that seem to believe just having their name attached to your LinkedIn profile is benefit enough. But that's not how we do things at the W. P. Carey School.

How can you create a game-changer for your career? The W. P. Carey School delivers the highest-ranked part-time MBA in Arizona, according to U.S. News & World Report, which reflects not just the quality curriculum, but also the caliber of your future classmates and the perception of the program among other business schools.
