The Carey Business School seeks to educate a new generation of leaders who will develop business solutions for today’s problems and tomorrow’s challenges.

Over the course of their program, students gain the theoretical building blocks of business education and are also given numerous opportunities to learn practical skills—through case studies, simulations, civic service, and experiential learning. Experiential courses not only enhance the learning experience for students both in and beyond the classroom, they also connect students with practical, project-based learning and immersion projects with external partners. Examples of experiential courses include:
