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. MTaxDA 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 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.

Program operations

We also work closely with you and your peers to host events and opportunities to keep you connected and engaged throughout.

Extracurricular activities

Make the most of your time outside the classroom. Activities for MTaxDA 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.
