Experiential learning is in our DNA

At America’s first research university, we know firsthand that the next big discovery in business happens when we roll up our sleeves and immerse ourselves in the field. That’s why we push ourselves out of our comfort zones and bring the field to the classroom, take the classroom to the field, and drive innovations to market. We don’t shy away from complex problems, we embrace them, and hone our skills and knowledge in the process.

Carey Business School’s full-time MBA curriculum was recognized by MBA Roundtable with a 2021 Innovator Award of General Excellence. MBA Roundtable’s Innovator Award Program promotes initiatives that advance innovation in graduate management education and recognizes institutions that drive change in the field.  

Gain the skills employers demand

Throughout your career, you will be faced with tough decisions, tight budgets, limited resources, and not enough data. But your foundation of strong leadership skills developed in our hands-on courses prepares you to face the most difficult challenges head-on. Our courses and co-curriculars aren’t based on a mold. It’s about finding what styles and strategies work best for you. Think creatively. Innovate to overcome obstacles. And graduate with the framework to continue sharpening your personalized approach to leadership, research, client engagement, and communication.

The World Economic Forum “Future of Jobs” report named complex problem solving, critical thinking, teaming, and creativity the top three in-demand skills for 2020. Experiential learning is your opportunity to refine these skills and pilot new approaches while working with business partners to solve their existing problems and current challenges.
