Admission to the PhD program requires high-order analytical skills, intellectual curiosity, and the ability to work independently in pursuing scholarly research.
The online application should take about 30 minutes to complete once you collect the admissions materials including your letters of recommendation, personal statement, transcripts, and applicable work experience.
GMAT scores are preferred, although the GRE is accepted. Use the following W. P. Carey institutional codes:
Mail all official university transcripts to the ASU Office of Graduate Education, or request that your original institution submit them directly. A Document Reference Number can be included on each transcript for authentication purposes. For international transcripts, review ASU Office of Graduate Education guidelines.
An additional $50 fee will be required for applications received after July 1. Applications will not be processed until the fee is received and fees are non-refundable.
Select a minimum of three individuals who can speak to your personal qualities, career focus and potential for success in the PhD program. One letter should be from your current employer or faculty advisor, with the remainder from individuals who can best evaluate your potential for graduate-level business study. These typically are faculty or other professional associates. Letters of recommendation should be emailed to email@example.com.
The ASU Office of Graduate Education provides student visa documentation three to five months prior to the term of enrollment. A financial guarantee form and an enrollment deposit must be submitted before visa documents can be processed. You may also be required to submit evidence of English proficiency.
You should prepare your personal statement in advance to be uploaded into the online application. Submission of the personal statement allows you an opportunity to highlight the qualities and experiences that distinguish you as a prospective W. P. Carey doctoral student. Applicants are requested to provide information pertaining to the following areas as part of their statement:
The statement should be no more than two to four pages long. In review of your personal statement, the admissions committee will seek evidence of your maturity, leadership, strength of purpose, academic potential and ability to communicate clearly and professionally.
