The 18-month Weekend program begins in January, and combines classroom learning every other weekend with online learning.

Convenient and Flexible
Core classes for the Weekend program are held on ASU’s Tempe campus every other weekend, Friday from 4:30 – 9:00pm and Saturday from 8:00am – 5:00pm. Each core course consists of 60% classroom and 40% online instruction. Online learning is customized for each course to best deliver core concepts of the same quality as our classroom instruction.
Flexibility is a cornerstone of the W. P. Carey Professional MBA, allowing you to choose 15 credits of elective courses. Electives are 100% online and can be taken in one functional area to complete an in-depth area of emphasis or a technical certificate. You also can choose to take courses in different disciplines to provide breadth across business functions. Additionally, off-site electives in Washington, D.C. and international locations are available.
Once you begin the part-time program, you will find our dedicated, on-site student services second to none. Our commitment to personal service includes taking care of many of the logistical details of attending class. You also have access to dedicated career management professionals who assist in developing individualized plans for your post-graduation success.
