MBA concentrations

The W. P. Carey Full-time MBA is rooted in transformation. Through eight distinct MBA concentrations, you can create your own path forward, aligning your MBA with your goals and interests.

Customize your MBA

Beyond the Forward Focus core curriculum, you can create a blueprint for your career with concentrations and specializations within the Full-time MBA. Think of concentrations as a functional home, the discipline in which you intend to seek job placement, like marketing or finance. Specializations focus on a particular market sector, or the field where you can apply the strengths and knowledge of your concentration. You will be required to complete one concentration. Secondary concentrations and/or specializations are optional.

Full-time MBA concentrations

From traditional business disciplines to emerging fields, MBA concentrations allow you to gain deep expertise in the areas that matter most to you. Concentrations require 15 hours of coursework.

Because of the on-campus recruiting schedule early in your first semester in the Full-time MBA program, you will be strongly encouraged to choose a concentration around the first week in October.

Full-time MBA specializations

By adding greater depth in one area of study, specializations can help you stand out with recruiters and hiring organizations. Specializations are optional, and require nine credits of coursework for completion.
