Shape the Future

No one knows the value of a top-ranked business education more than our 90,000+ business alumni. Many W. P. Carey alumni remain engaged with the school long after completing their program of study.

There are many ways to give back, whether your gift is one of resources, time, or talent. Alumni volunteers are active participants in the classroom, serve as student mentors, and assist with our recruiting programs.

In the classroom

There are a variety of opportunities to assist faculty members with class activities, lecture on areas of expertise, contribute to research, or even consult on program curriculum. The W. P. Carey School regularly works with alumni and other reputable professionals to ensure all programs are on the cutting edge of what’s actually happening in the industry. Contact us to learn more.


Programs like Executive Connections give you a level of access and number of coaching opportunities rare among top business schools. A component of many of our programs, applied projects give alumni and industry experts the opportunity to offer guidance in an advisory role. Sponsoring a Student Solutions project is another way to leverage W. P. Carey talent, engaging students to identify, propose, and implement solutions for real business problems faced by client organizations.


It’s no secret: Our students add immediate value to businesses of all sizes, and across industries. Talk to us about hiring our students, building your brand with specialized knowledge groups throughout the school, accessing faculty expertise, or engaging in student projects.
