Veteran stories

Salute to Service

The W. P. Carey School of Business is proud to recognize members of our community who have served in our military. Their commitment to others and sacrifice is an inspiration to all of us, and we are so honored to give our veterans and service members opportunities to grow their careers through undergraduate and graduate business degrees.

Each year, Arizona State University displays our gratitude to these exemplary students, staff, and faculty through Salute to Service. The W. P. Carey School is humbled by the chance to be involved, through special events, programming dedicated to our service members, and more.
