W. P. Carey Campus Life

>> Fast-track MBA future students

Your MBA experience

A Fast-track MBA from ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business will better prepare you for leadership opportunities and a higher salary. Between work and a personal life or family commitments, returning to school — even two nights a week — can be a daunting task. The Fast-track MBA is designed to minimize the impact grad school can have on your life.

You can go at your own pace in the Fast-track MBA; you can complete the program on a full-time schedule in 12-18 months. However, if you prefer to space out courses for greater flexibility, you can still earn an MBA from America’s most innovative university while you continue working.

Life at W. P. Carey

On campus

Your learning unfolds in the state-of-the-art McCord Hall, which features innovative team rooms as well as student lounges where you can take a break. McCord Hall is located near the Memorial Union at ASU, considered the living room of campus, with a wide range of dining options and student support offices. Also close by is the Sun Devil Fitness Complex. The SDFC is much more than just a workout facility, offering programs and services to help you stay active both inside and outside of the complex.

Off campus

The ASU Tempe campus is close to all the action in metro Phoenix — culture, sports, shopping, and entertainment. With 300 days of sunshine a year, Phoenix is just a few hours from world-class skiing, the Grand Canyon, and more.
