The W. P. Carey Fast-track MBA delivers the business essentials you need to create impact in your current role and excel throughout your career. Building on your work experience and a previous master’s degree in a business field, the Fast-track MBA sharpens your analytical capabilities and decision-making, and unlocks your leadership skills.

For working professionals who need an MBA to advance in their careers but prefer to work while going to school, the Fast-track MBA from ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business offers the quality and flexibility that is a benchmark of America’s most innovative university. Fast-track MBA classes are held two evenings a week on ASU’s Tempe campus — with online courses also available — allowing you to earn your MBA in 12-18 months, depending on your incoming discipline.

A recent $15 million commitment by the W. P. Carey Foundation to support career services gives you access to more resources, tools, coaching, and employers as you prepare for that important next step in your career.

As a STEM-designated degree, the Fast-track 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.
