This review is for W.P. Carey
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2017
The school specializes in end to end integrated supply chain management and technology driven marketing analytics. Some of the core expectations that were fulfilled as part of my short term goals were how to work on business processes , strategic procurement, operations management and inventory simulation. The professors emphasize on analyzing data and doing some awesome case studies.
I also feel there is a scope to change the curriculum. Since it is highly research driven, blockchain could be part of the new curriculum. The Business analytics classes are equally inspiring. The program can place emphasis on pseudo code developments and making people awesome product owners for some of the internal tools.
The international candidates are the best students in this program in terms of analytics, program management capabilities and have some great experiences and have high gmat score credentials.
Future applicants: Its the best school for supply chain and try to leverage your seniors and alums. So many opportunities and tons of placements. Just don't worry about jobs and internships.
Statistics was a big disappointment, though international students didn't face any problem Heavily focused and invested in operations. Some great professors such as Byers, Thomas Kull, Rabinovich. Rabinovich's classes were extremely important in terms of pure industry work and experience. This class focused heavily on logistics planning, aggregation of SKUs and network design, Similarly finance classes, especially the class with Galinger in Valuations was the best class. But you guys are unlucky, he retired this year. Classes or marketing are equally good. The project and capstone exposure is also equally good. Entrepreneurship classes were equally great and so was the solar commercialization classes.
Just don't worry about job. All of you will be getting some internships and awesome jobs. Just don't be dumb and network like crazy. Only two or three international student in my year did some kind unpaid internship or part time work. If you are coming to ASU, internship/job search should be your least headache.
The situation at this point is challenging due to certain changes, but all of the students have got extremely good options. Its a forward focused program and the ASU MBA is the best thing to happen in life.
One point of discontent: the school admitted people with no work experience and they are not at all suitable for business school. The school needs to be more picky and focus on work exp and high gmat scores for future. ASU is the no 1 innovation school in USA and the full time MBA is moving in the same direction.
