Why get an MBA from ASU?

Being able to build meaningful, authentic, collaborative relationships that bring out the best in everyone is an essential skill for any leader. At W. P. Carey, our motto reflects this ethos: Where Business is Personal. This is an essential part of who we are and one of the unique strengths of the Connected MBA.

They really do try to make Where Business is Personal true. The school wants you to be involved. The majority of the staff work on the third floor of McCord Hall, and us MBA students practically live in McCord Hall. You walk past people and it’s such a friendly environment. It’s almost like a second home because you spend so much time there and get to know everyone.

The Connected MBA enables transformation

Entrepreneurship and innovation are key to our curriculum and your experience. Students not only benefit from high-touch programming, but also see firsthand how powerful connection can be in driving organizations to do great things. Over the course of your program, you will connect with yourself, others, industry, ideas, your community, and the world.

Do: Learn by doing. Practice new skills in a supportive environment and spark connections with classmates and faculty.

Build: Make an impact, establish your thought leadership, and create a career path on your own terms.

Catalyze: Become an action-oriented, connected leader with strong human skills.

Community to me is everything. It’s the lifeblood of any group of people with common goals, and it’s the support system that keeps individuals thriving and growing. The community here at W. P. Carey lives up to that, and more.

My cohort boasts some of the greatest people I’ve ever had the privilege to know. Not only do staff and students alike champion your efforts and celebrate your victories, each and every one of them will go out of their way to help you succeed.

The world needs connected leaders

People are our greatest asset. Organizations who want to compete in today’s environment need visionary leaders who are keenly attuned to others, see and develop the value they can bring to the table, and create opportunities for them to do their best work.

Being a connected leader means having a holistic understanding of people, ideas, and context. W. P. Carey MBA graduates see the big picture, tackle problems from multiple perspectives, and can link seemingly unrelated ideas in unexpected and novel ways. Connected leaders don’t necessarily have all the answers — they are good listeners and proactively make space for great ideas to rise to the top.

Something I learned at W. P. Carey that really changed my perspective about things was the importance of everyone bringing their authentic perspective to the table. If we can bring our curiosity and our strengths to the table, we don't need to have everything figured out. We don't need to have all the answers.

Together we can ask better questions. We can learn from each other's experiences, and we can arrive at better questions that lead us to better answers.

Prepare for what’s next

One of the biggest challenges that leaders face today is fostering a sense of shared values and united purpose within organizations that are far flung and diverse. In the age of remote work and globalization, leaders need to share their vision and gain buy-in in ways that are culturally sensitive, authentic, and meaningful.

Through a Connected MBA designed for where the world is headed, W. P. Carey will prepare you to navigate uncertainty and build a better future.

Pursuing my MBA, I knew I wanted to have even more business skills to be a stronger advocate for the communities I serve.

Meeting incredible connections at W. P. Carey allowed me to get promoted within my organization and lead a national team. It was because of what I learned in the classroom directly that my professional career grew.

Whether it’s faculty, staff, your classmates, or the community networks that you will find at Arizona State University, they will support you along the way.

I had the technical side of the knowledge, but hadn’t really studied business in a systematic way. No matter what I plan to be in the future, either continuing the product management role or discovering something new, business fundamentals are something that every company needs and that every business manager should be armed with.

This is one of the best programs in the country. I'm saying that not just because of the curriculum, the faculty, or the wonderful recruitment outcomes, but because it's a place of growth.

Here in the Phoenix area, you get to learn a lot about the American Southwest, but also get to really know people because it's such a close-knit program.

If you put in the work, you get to see all the ways you can grow as a person and you can achieve all the professional outcomes that you want for yourself.
