Your MBA experience

At the W. P. Carey School, business is personal. Classes never exceed 50 students, so your classmates become friends and peers. You'll even build strong bonds with instructors, who count on your participation to enrich class sessions.

Achieving work-school-life balance

Between work and a personal life or family commitments, returning to school — even two nights a week — can be a daunting task. That’s why the Professional Flex MBA is focused on flexibility. You choose the path that best fits your schedule, whether that’s a two-year degree or if you take courses for four years, and whether you meet face-to-face or online. If something comes up and you can’t make an on-campus class session, we have virtual learning options (think robots!) to help you stay up to speed with coursework and class discussions.

You can add even more flexibility to your schedule by choosing online courses, subject to availability. The W. P. Carey School of Business launched its first online program in 2003. In the years since, thousands of students have chosen W. P. Carey to help them pursue a degree that can make a real difference in their lives, while still being able to earn a degree while they work.

Orientation

Your W. P. Carey experience begins with a mandatory on-campus orientation prior to the start of your program. You'll meet your fellow Professional Flex MBA 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 will receive regular updates regarding deadlines, registration, payments, and billing. For students commuting from outside metro Phoenix, we will work with you to find comfortable accommodations and convenient travel, as well as transportation to and from campus.
