Through a comprehensive business curriculum taught by world-renowned faculty, the W. P. Carey Executive MBA will expand your leadership skills and help you immediately impact your organization. Over the course of the two-year program, you'll develop a strategic perspective and learn how policy shapes business decisions, and how companies half a world away can impact your organization.

An optional business of health care concentration examines how to improve the quality of care while focusing on lower consumer and provider costs. Designed for senior leaders in the health sector, the concentration will deepen your understanding of economic, supply chain, data and technology, and organizational issues unique to health care.

Because of the quality of our students and graduates, and the stewardship of the initial gift to the school by Wm. Polk Carey, the W. P. Carey Foundation has invested $15 million into career services, giving you more resources and tools to further your leadership and your career.

As a STEM-designated degree, the Executive MBA allows eligible graduates on student visas access to an Optional Practical Training (OPT) extension for up to 36 months, helping international students gain additional real-world skills and experience in the U.S.
