Your MBA experience

Welcome to the W. P. Carey School of Business, where business is personal®. And as a busy working professional, your time is precious. That’s why we’re committed to helping you succeed, in class, outside of class, and after you receive your MBA.


Your W. P. Carey experience begins with a mandatory program orientation. With the inclusion of synchronous and asynchronous sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet and network with your fellow students — who will become your teammates throughout the program. W. P. Carey faculty and staff will also be participating, preparing you for a seamless start to graduate school, no matter where you are.

Program operations

Focus on your studies while we focus on the student experience. Our dedicated team will help you with the resources you need to be successful in the classroom through academic advising, course enrollment, and navigating the policy and process of being a student. We also work closely with you and your peers to host events and opportunities to keep you connected and engaged throughout.

Online MBA technical assistance

Online learning is only as good as your access to coursework, instructors and fellow students. So if you encounter a technical problem at any time, our in-house support staff can help with:

  • Technical support
  • Instructional design and course management
  • Enhanced course delivery and development systems

MBA Ambassadors

An important link for prospective and current students, MBA Ambassadors give you access to current W. P. Carey MBA students, who can fill you in on application tips, returning to school, and how the W. P. Carey School prepares you for your career, and even life on campus and around town. Got a question? Ask an ambassador.
