The program had excellent professors and accomplished classmates which contributed to the learning experience. There was a combination of theoretical concepts and practical case studies along with two class trips; one to Washington, DC to accompany the Business and Public Policy course and an international practicum to Santiago, Chile and Lima, Peru to accompany the International Business Management course.

Application Process, Written Presentation, intense interview and then review of work experience and compatability with the program. Very rigorous standards. I found the make up of the class cohort made the program even more worthwhile and highly recommend that this be part of any application process.

Professors are outstanding... leaders in their field. The cohort is a great mix of talents and backgrounds - very culturally diverse. The material is very relevant and can be applied at work immediately. I thought the class size would be too large at 40, but it's about right. The international and D.C. practicum courses are great experiences.

Admissions

Two relevant essay questions regarding work and other experience that qualifies the applicant for the program. An interview (approx. 1.5 hrs) to further explain the candidate's experience and make sure there is a match between what the candidate has to offer and the program. No GMAT, unless not accepted to the executive program. The application process was detailed and adequate info is provided on financial aid. ASU also offers orientation programs and opportunities for applicants to sit as a guest in a class, which is helpful.

Small classes and case study methodology contribute to deep discussions every day. The case study foundation serves as a valuable foundation to the various project partnerships in the second year. Currently, I am working on real-world projects in three of my five courses. These complexity and relevance of these projects provides a skill set that could never be gained through coursework alone.

Quality of Life

Cost of living in Phoenix is extremely affordable. Campus has all the facilities that I have ever needed to access.

The WP. carey executive MBA program professors are absolutely amazing. This has been a life changing learning experience. Have grown myself professionally and personally for the betterment of my life.

Admissions

The admissions process at the W. P. Carey Executive MBA program is very stringent compared to other schools that I have attended. What stuck me the most is the time the staff to understand my situation and where I wanted to be in career path. The admission staff are very friendly, supportive and pro-active in working with me during the entire admission process.

Majority of classes were taught by Department Heads with extensive academic and real world experience. One of the most consistent and well liked aspects was the discussions during class that was aided by the balance in back ground professions. Every student, executive, had a position and could justify it and challenged others. These exchanges often expanded the intended curriculum well beyond what was originally planned and added increased learning opprotunities for all.

Admissions

Essays with multiple interviews, recomendation letters and intensive review of work history.

The class sizes are small (less than 45) in core courses. In specialization/elective courses, this drops considerably (less than 20). The quality of classroom discussion is excellent as the professors use the case method combined with lectures and textbook study to balance out the curriculum. The Supply Chain Management program is highly reputable and ranked and has some very good faculty. Additionally, the school offers International Electives to study abroad (India, Argentina, Europe, Southeast Asia, and China are among a few of the programs). Professors are challenging and students have to earn their grades in this program.

Quality of Life

The cost of living is very low in Tempe, Arizona. The school is located in a good part of campus with easy access to the library, computer labs, coffee, and food. The facilities are well-maintained and outdoor seating is plentiful to enjoy the nice Arizona weather. The school offers many opportunities for social involvement with volunteer activities within the community. Overall, crime on campus is low and I have been very happy with the school.

Admissions

The admissions process is very detailed. The program has student ambassadors who are current students help with the admissions process. For a typical applicant, a full-day of activities are scheduled. This includes a campus tour with student ambassadors, a lunch with a student ambassador (often tied to what specialization the student is considering or similar background), a classroom visit, and also an interview which includes both a student ambassador and admissions staff. The admissions team goes beyond the GMAT, GPA, and Essay questions to get a holistic picture of the student. The interview contains an abundance of questions related to assessing the emotional intelligence of the applicant - these soft skill questions try to identify those with strong emotional intelligence and leadership skills. Additionally, the interview also includes a case question in which a student is presented a scenario and has to identify the company, the issue, and possible solutions to the business problem. In addition, the student is asked for any ethical considerations as ethics is a major component of our program. Additionally, the program is structured such that your application is the basis for scholarships and graduate assistantships.

Overall, the class quality is absolutely exceptional. There is a great deal of academic rigor, and it is definitely not an easy program. The cohort size (53 students per cohort, two cohorts in my class) is perfect. The online program is lockstep, with very intense six week courses, and we are matched in a team for two years which has made working together in geographically disparate locations much easier.

Quality of Life

I'm in the online program, so I don't have much interaction with life on campus

Admissions

Fairly easy and simple, comparable to most schools. GMAT, a few standard application questions, and normal data collection.

i find the classes challenging. i also feel i am able to apply what i learn immediately at work. the program is lockstep and has a great mix of theory and practical application.

Quality of Life

i am not too familiar with the quality of life on campus because i live in my own house. i chose the online program because i frequently travel for work and need the flexibility.

Admissions

the application questions were unique but allowed me to express my goals and give a glimpse of my personality. there was no interview. i had to take the GMAT twice because my first score was not high enough to be admitted. the second score got me in. i also needed solid letters of recommendation and a relevant resume. the financial aid i am using are fafsa loans and company tuition reimbursement.
