MBAHomecoming 2012:
A Celebration to Remember!

Perhaps you were among the many hundreds of business alumni who celebrated ASU’s Homecoming with the W. P. Carey School of Business in our Block Party tent this year. If so, you know firsthand that a great time was had by all! The Block Party, which was held on ASU’s Tempe campus prior to the Homecoming football game, has quickly become a tradition over the past several years with many schools and organizations participating across the university. This super-sized tailgate serves to unite alumni, family, friends, students, faculty and staff for a spirited celebration of our shared Sun Devil pride. This year the W. P. Carey School of Business tent was buzzing with plenty food, fun, and festivities including prizes, candy for trick-or-treaters, and an instant photo booth that captured the fun. From there, many business alums headed to the game to cheer on the Sun Devils in our business alumni cheering section. While the outcome of the game was not what we hoped for, the fun memories of the 2012 Homecoming festivities made the experience worthwhile. To view photos from this year’s Block Party, please visit our photo gallery. We are already looking forward to next year’s Homecoming festivities and hope that you will join us in the W. P. Carey School of Business Block Party tent in 2013!

New Global Rankings Laud the W. P. Carey School of Business

New rankings and ratings are out from three prestigious groups that examine the best business schools in the world. The Financial Times, The Economist and The Princeton Review all give the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University extremely high marks for excellence.
“The new rankings from The Economist and Financial Times show the W. P. Carey School is consistently recognized among the best business schools in the world,” says Robert Mittelstaedt, dean of the W. P. Carey School of Business. “The new book from The Princeton Review delivers high praise in the form of reviews from our own students. Recognition from highly regarded media outlets is gratifying, but acclaim from students who actually attend our school and learn from our stellar faculty also really validates our mission and accomplishments.”

The new rankings from The Economist, also released this month, review the W. P. Carey School’s full-time MBA program in Arizona. This marks the first time the school has been invited to participate in the global rankings survey, and it debuted high on the Top 100, at No. 59. It is the only Arizona school on the entire list and Top 10 in the western United States. The full-time W. P. Carey MBA program is known for its small, personal classes and a high return-on-investment for tuition.

The Princeton Review releases its new edition of “The Best 296 Business Schools” this month. The new book is based largely on student surveys and praises the W. P. Carey School for its peer network, cutting-edge classes, satisfied students, career services, and solid preparation in management and teamwork. The book gives the school a 96 rating for academic experience and a 93 rating for career (graduate employment/salaries), on a scale with a maximum of 99.
