Considered one of the best Executive MBA programs in the nation, the W. P. Carey Executive MBA offers a comprehensive general management curriculum for busy working professionals and executives who have 10 to 15 years experience managing people, projects and budgets. The program is geared toward managers who seek to further contribute to the goals of their companies and to enhance their professional careers.
The class schedule is convenient for travel from within Arizona and from surrounding states. Classes begin in the fall and meet twice monthly on Fridays and Saturdays, allowing you to minimize time away from work and maximize the time you have for studying and class preparation unlike other Executive MBA schools that might require you to re-order your whole life schedule.
Top Faculty, Small Classes
Our world-renowned research faculty, a primary component that has established W. P. Carey as one of the best Executive MBA programs in the country, uses case-based methodologies and applied learning experiences to ensure the concepts taught are immediately ready for implementation in your current work environment. Team-based activities and projects, along with interactive and engaging class discussions, ensure you learn new concepts from your peers in every class meeting.
Small classes of fewer than 50 students allow you to network with peers and alumni from the program as you develop lifelong business and personal relationships.
Among the most effective strategies offered by Executive MBA schools, W. P. Carey’s core business courses are augmented by a series of lectures on thought leadership along with off-site learning programs, including our Business and Public Policy course in Washington, D.C. An additional off-site course exploring issues and strategies in the international business environment will be held in partnership with an international business school.
Once you begin the program, you will find our dedicated, on-site student services staff second to none. Their commitment to academic quality and personal service includes taking care of many of the logistical details of attending class. You also have access to career management professionals who assist in developing individualized plans for your post-graduation success.
