    Where business is personal®

    Business is about people – faculty, staff, corporate partners, students, alumni – and our work changes their lives.

    We are a school on a mission

    The W. P. Carey School of Business is redefining business education.

  • W. P. Carey convocation

    Committed to student success

    By living out our values of excellence, integrity, impact and community, we create an environment where each student feels supported, connected and empowered.

At the heart of it all

February is National Heart Month, and – no surprise – the W. P. Carey community has plenty of heart. Take our namesake, Wm. Polk Carey, for example. In 2003, he gave ASU $50 million to rename the College of Business. This year, his foundation is giving the school another $25 million. Through these generous investments, W. P. Carey has been able to accomplish extraordinary things, becoming one of the world’s top business schools.

Sometimes, students leave the W. P. Carey School with more than a top-ranked education — they find a life partner, too. Read about these alumni couples who can trace their #wpclove story beginning back to campus.

February 17-23 is Random Acts of Kindness Week. Often times we only hear about the grand gestures, but it’s usually the small of acts of kindness that can really impact someone’s day. We challenge you to find ways to incorporate more kindness into your day. Get into the spirit of the #wpckindnesschallenge and show the world why W. P. Carey is a place where business is personal.

Empathy in CEOs a mixed bag

“Some empathy is needed for effective leadership, but there is such a thing as too much empathy,” says Assistant Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship Jonathan Bundy in his paper, “A blessing and a curse: How CEOs' empathy affects their management of organizational crises.”

Analytics is no longer just for nerds. Once a nontraditional part of business curricula, data analytics programs quickly are becoming the norm. W. P. Carey’s ultimate objective is to create an analytics culture based on collaboration among students, faculty, practitioners, and corporate partners.
