My trip to Arizona State University W.P. Carey School of Business was a memorable one. I had a great visit with Tabitha Courtney, Senior Associate Director of Admission and Recruitment, Graduate Programs, and Ruthie Pyles, Director of MBA & Graduate Admission and Recruitment - a veteran traveler with The MBA Tour. She had some great things to say about our 2013 events, and we are looking forward to having her on the road with us again in 2014! After our meeting, the entire W.P. Carey staff came outside for a photo opportunity. What a fun and dedicated group of people.


Arizona State University is the largest public university in the nation, with campus locations across the Phoenix metropolitan area and beyond. The Carey School of Business is housed on ASU's Tempe Campus. I loved the unique architecture of the buildings (pictured below). A campus in beautiful Arizona would not be complete without the subtropical landscaping that ASU offers its students - it is like going to business school on a resort!

Fun Facts about W.P. Carey:

  • The W.P. Carey School is a rankings goldmine! Ranked the #2 online MBA, #18 part-time MBA, and #27 Full-time MBA by US News in 2013, the Carey School has 1,100 MBA students enrolled in various programs.
  • Despite being one of the largest business schools in the nation, the W.P. Carey School of Business is unique for its small class sizes (most under 45 students)! This creates the opportunity for one-on-one interactions between students and professors.
  • Students' two favorite things about W.P. Carey? Its overwhelming sense of community and expansive alumni network!
