Your W. P. Carey experience

Welcome to the W. P. Carey School of Business, where business is personal®. Small class sizes allow you to collaborate with your classmates and build strong bonds with your instructors, who count on your participation to enrich each class session. MACC classes are held at times throughout the day in the state-of-the-art McCord Hall. It’s the ideal place to focus on projects, research assignments, and even grab a bite to eat and relax.


Your W. P. Carey experience begins with a mandatory on-campus 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 details. Our dedicated student services team will work with you to provide key resources you need to be successful in the MACC program, including:

  • Billing and deadline reminders
  • Academic information
  • Course announcements

Extracurricular activities
