Hottest MBA program in the hottest state of US


This review is for W.P. Carey

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

The program is very intensive and grueling. The lectures and course works are based on too much assignments. You won't get time to do some external study and networking. A huge number of case assignments makes your social quotient low. Of course there are exceptions. But I was surprised by some of the case studies. Some of them were exceptional and others were too old. I am not satisfied with the program to a great extent. Since I don't have supply chain background, it was very difficult to speak with recruiters. People will say that you can have transferable skill sets...doesn't work. I think the program waives your education fees and that is something was really helpful

About professors, classes and curriculum

Great professors.
I liked professor Kevin Corley's class. He taught us negotiations.
Byers is also great and make you learn the subject and concepts.
Andrea Morales is awesome too.
Hina Arora.

About job placement process

Network hard. Its very competitive. Keep networking. Attend all the lunch and learn sessions and the company info sessions. This year was not really great in terms of job opportunities. Some of the core recruiters didn't hire and most probably wont come for certain time. Can't disclose all the names here. But we need to revamp the career management center, that is absolutely ridiculous. We need more active people in corporate and employers relations management.
