Your MACC experience
Within America’s largest public university, the W. P. Carey School is committed to building a tight-knit community. Through small classes, team-based learning, and individualized attention every step of the way, your experience in the Master of Accountancy and Data Analytics is uniquely your own.
Life at W. P. Carey
Your learning unfolds in the state-of-the-art McCord Hall, which features innovative team rooms as well as student lounges where you can take a break. McCord Hall is located near the Memorial Union at ASU, considered the living room of campus, with a wide range of dining options and student support offices. Also close by is the Sun Devil Fitness Complex. The SDFC is much more than just a workout facility, offering programs and services to help you stay active both inside and outside of the complex.
The ASU Tempe campus is close to all the action in metro Phoenix — culture, sports, shopping, and entertainment. With 300 days of sunshine a year, Phoenix is just a few hours from world-class skiing, the Grand Canyon, and more.
Your W. P. Carey experience begins with program orientation prior to the start of your program. You'll meet your fellow students and teammates, as well as W. P. Carey faculty and staff, preparing you for a seamless start to graduate school.
Focus on your studies while we focus on the student experience. Our dedicated team will help you with the resources you need to be successful in the classroom through academic advising, course enrollment, and navigating the policy and process of being a student. We also work closely with you and your peers to host events and opportunities to keep you connected and engaged throughout.
Make the most of your time outside the classroom. Activities for accounting and taxation graduate students include:
Meet W. P. Carey alumni who can provide insight on grad school and your career path. You can work with an ongoing mentor and “flash mentors” to help you find your way.
