MBA Part-Time - Life at W. P. Carey

Life at W. P. Carey

At the W. P. Carey School, business is personal. Classes never exceed 50 students, so your classmates become friends and peers. You'll even build strong bonds with instructors, who count on your participation to enrich class sessions.


In the Classroom

Evening MBA students can choose from locations on ASU’s Tempe campus or in North Scottsdale, whichever location suits your schedule and commute. No matter where you attend, you’ll receive the same instruction from the same world-renowned W. P. Carey faculty. Classes are held from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. on either a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule.

The Weekend MBA is a hybrid of online learning and on-campus courses in the state-of-the-art McCord Hall on ASU’s Tempe campus. Core classes are held on campus every other weekend, from 4:30 – 9:00 p.m. on Friday and from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.


Your W. P. Carey experience begins with a mandatory on-campus orientation prior to the start of your program. You'll meet your fellow students and teammates, as well as W. P. Carey faculty and staff, preparing you for a seamless start to graduate school.

Student Services

From registration to scheduling to parking arrangements and more, the W. P. Carey student services team will focus on the details so you can focus on your MBA. You will receive regular updates regarding deadlines, registration, payments, and billing. For students commuting from outside metro Phoenix, we will work with you to find comfortable accommodations and convenient travel, as well as transportation to and from campus.

MBA Ambassadors

An important link for prospective and current students, MBA Ambassadors give you access to current W. P. Carey MBA students, who can fill you in on application tips, returning to school, how the W. P. Carey School prepares you for your career, and even life on campus and around town.

"Thanks to the Students Services staff, there is no tireless search for books or problems trying to secure classes. The staff takes the busy work of registration and book buying entirely out of the equation."
