Continuing the journey at W. P. Carey

In an increasingly competitive job market, a postgraduate degree can be the difference maker when getting hired. Business degrees can be versatile and useful in countless career paths, which is why many ASU students continue their education at W. P. Carey.

“I decided to continue at W. P. Carey over joining the workforce because I knew the program would allow for better opportunities after graduating,” says Evan Cone (BS Supply Chain Management ’22, MS-BA ’23). “I also knew that the experiences I would have during my time in the MS-BA program would make me a more valuable employee.” During his master’s degree program, Cone met with potential employers through school-hosted job fairs, setting him on a path to success after graduation.

Joshua Pardhe (MS-FIN ’23) earned his bachelor’s degree from the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, but his interest in the finance industry led him to W. P. Carey. “My goal to move from engineering to finance was to specialize in a specific field at the intersection of both careers,” he says. “Moving directly from my undergraduate degree into the MS-FIN program allowed me to complete my educational goals while only requiring one additional year of academia.”

After earning her undergraduate W. P. Carey degree in three years, Madison Koath (BS Finance ’22, MS-FIN ’23) believed she would be a stronger candidate in the workforce with a master’s degree. Because she finished her bachelor’s degree early, she could also use her remaining scholarship to help cover graduate school costs.

Open to all ASU undergraduate students, the school hosts W. P. Carey Forward Conference events to share information about different degree options, scholarships, the application process, and the resources available to W. P. Carey graduate students.
