Curriculum

Develop your leadership skills wherever and whenever learning suits you best. With one core course at a time, and flexible elective options, the Online MBA allows you to focus on your studies while juggling your career and life.

The W. P. Carey Online MBA has been designed to mirror the MBA our students receive through on-campus full-time and part-time programs, offering the same core curriculum and multiple electives to enhance your MBA.

Online MBA format

With one core course at a time, you’ll immerse yourself in one topic, with a final exam or final project in the fifth week. Additionally, you can choose from a variety of elective courses or complement your MBA by earning a concurrent degree. Program start dates in January and August mean you can choose the schedule that gives you the best opportunity to succeed.
