You're Here — Where Business is Personal

A letter from the dean

Dean Amy Ostrom, Portrait

Are you familiar with the old adage “It’s not personal, it’s business?” At the W. P. Carey School of Business, we reject that saying. Shouldn’t we each find personal fulfillment in our work? Shouldn’t we strive daily to improve the lives around us? Shouldn’t we extend compassion and understanding to those we interact with? We sure think so. In fact, we think business education should be personal, too. That’s our purpose at W. P. Carey and why we are so proud to work here. Welcome!
