One of the top MBA programs in the nation, the W. P. Carey Full-time MBA offers core business courses complemented by elective classes and summer internships. As a full-time student, you also complete an in-depth specialization designed to help focus your studies and enhance your career goals.
The Full-time MBA is a two-year program with core business courses taken primarily in the first year. Core courses are typically scheduled Monday through Thursday mornings, with afternoons set aside for meeting with study teams and preparing course assignments. Most students enroll in three to five courses at a time.
Electives and Internships
Several unique features have established W. P. Carey as one of the top MBA programs, but the electives and internship opportunities have proven to be especially effective in helping students meet their goals. Toward the end of the first year, you select from a number of specialization or elective offerings. To further support your career goals, you complete a required internship during the summer between the first and second year of the program.
In the second year, you continue with several courses in your selected specialization. Additional elective courses may be taken to build knowledge in other areas, to select a second specialization or to complete an area of emphasis.
International and Off-Site Electives
The W. P. Carey MBA offers a number of international and off-site learning opportunities that allow you to participate in a variety of international electives abroad. A course in business and public policy also is offered in Washington, D.C. These courses are typically held in January, May or during break periods that minimize conflict with regular courses.
To gain a more fully rounded MBA experience, it is recommended that you also choose an international elective, taken in the summer between your first and second year. International electives are offered prior to the beginning of most internships, allowing you the flexibility to complete both.
Information sessions are available throughout the year to provide you with details regarding the cost, application process and course dates.
