ASU - W. P. Carey School FT MBA review


This review is for W.P. Carey

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

'Business is Personal' is tagline of the school and everyone makes it sure to follow it completely. MBA itself is difficult and time consuming but from students, professors to career coaches and admission staff put in lot of efforts to help us as much as possible.

Concentration wise - SCM and marketing are really good. I cannot speak for other as I am not aware of the details.
Financial aids - School offers tremendous support in this if you are eligible and great candidate.
Future Forward - The latest curriculum is very new to be reviewed but core strengths are similar so should be great value addition in near future.
Placements- Graduate Career Center helps a lot with recruiting events and career coaching. International students have limited opportunities and have to try harder (but it is not specific to school). Summer Internship is compulsory.
Class size - small cohort helps a lot. This was one of my major reasons for selection.

About professors, classes and curriculum

The MBA program has 'executive coach' course where few students are coupled with the executive coach (these are usually retired or about to retire) executives, CXOs with tremendous industry experience. He/She would mentor the students throughout two years and this has been one of the best experiences for me in this program.
