TEMPE, Ariz., Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University announced today a new Fast-track MBA that allows students to earn an MBA from America’s most innovative university in as little as 12 months. The program, which aims to build on students’ work experience and a previous master’s degree in a business field, will hold evening classes on ASU’s Tempe campus — with online courses also available.

The new Fast-track MBA will bridge the gap in students’ skillsets and better prepare them for leadership opportunities and a higher salary. The core courses provide a foundation in business knowledge, covering management, marketing, accounting, finance, data analytics, and supply chain management principles. Elective courses enhance the core curriculum and allow for more focused development in selected disciplines.

“We’re always looking at ways to make education more accessible,” said W. P. Carey Dean Amy Hillman. “ASU and the W. P. Carey School have a reputation for innovation, and the Fast-track MBA is another way we can use our resources to offer a solution for students who might have thought there were too many obstacles to getting an MBA.

“This program can be completed in a year in just two nights a week, so we’ve minimized the disruption grad school can add to someone’s life.”

A recent $15 million commitment by the W. P. Carey Foundation to support career services gives students access to more resources, tools, coaching, and employers as students prepare for that important next step in their career.
