Imagine sending a select group of employees from your company through a W. P. Carey School of Business MBA program that is specifically designed around your firm’s business challenges. You can do just that through our custom corporate MBA program, which we offer partly, or even entirely, online to your employees around the globe.
A dedicated design team consisting of instructional designers and a faculty director will collaborate with your company to craft an MBA program that meets your objectives.
