Life at W. P. Carey

Welcome to the W. P. Carey School of Business, where business is personal®. We place an emphasis on small classes, helping you build strong bonds with classmates as well as instructors, who count on your participation to enrich class sessions.

In the classroom

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. Full-time MBA classes meet Monday – Thursday mornings, with afternoons reserved for team meetings, career coaching in the Graduate Career Center, and working with student organizations.

Outside the classroom

The ASU 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.


Your W. P. Carey experience begins with program orientation prior to the start of your program. You'll meet your fellow students and teammates, as well as W. P. Carey faculty and staff, preparing you for a seamless start to graduate school.
