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. You'll meet your fellow students — who will become your teammates throughout the program — as well as W. P. Carey faculty and staff, preparing you for a seamless start to graduate school, no matter where you are. If extenuating circumstances prohibit your attendance in person, you may petition to attend a virtual orientation.

Student services

Focus on your studies while we focus on the details. The W. P. Carey MBA program is committed to making your transition back to the classroom as seamless as possible.

Our dedicated student services team will work with you to provide the resources you need to be successful, including:

  • Course registration
  • Billing and deadline reminders

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
