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 a mandatory on-campus 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.

Student services

From registration to scheduling to parking arrangements and more, the W. P. Carey student services team will focus on the details so you can focus on your MBA. You can also expect a few surprises along the way — lunch served after class, early morning coffee breaks, or much-needed snacks during exam weeks.
