Executive MBA and Professional MBA

Education for life.

We now know that life-time learning is a thing. Gone are the days when what you learned in college, or even graduate school, could serve you well over the entire course of your career. And long gone are the days when you joined a company and stayed there until retirement.

To compete and succeed in today's frenetic and globally connected marketplace requires agility and relentless vigilance—with a steady eye trained on the future. Whether you're looking at an Executive MBA or Professional MBA degree as the next step in your professional education that keeps your career moving forward, or you're ready for a quick, skill-building shot in the arm, Forté's business school partners can deliver the goods.

Forté partners offer options to help you get the education and connections you need to stay out front. Executive MBA programs are designed to leverage your experience and propel executives and mid-career professionals to the next level. You can also earn a career-boosting MBA in an evening, part-time, weekend format. And if you already have an EMBA/MBA, you can polish or expand your knowledge, skills and network in a non-degree executive education program lasting a few days or weeks.

Solutions for the planet mean developing problem-solvers from around the globe. From our world-renowned faculty representing six continents to thousands of outstanding students who join us every year from around the world, the W. P. Carey School welcomes diversity and encourages global thinking.

Executive MBA

Through a comprehensive business curriculum taught by world-renowned faculty, the W. P. Carey Executive MBA will expand your leadership skills and help you immediately impact your organization.

Professional Flex MBA

Designed for busy working professionals, the W. P. Carey Professional Flex MBA is the highest-ranked part-time MBA in Arizona, allowing you to personalize your MBA through a combination of evening and selected online classes while earning your degree in two to four years.

The Professional Flex MBA stands apart from many part-time MBA programs that offer a core business curriculum with very little specialization. With more than 40 electives, technical certificates, and concurrent degrees that you can add to your degree, your MBA can align with your strengths, unlock areas of opportunity, and help you pursue your passion.

From an Auburn EMBA Student:

“Auburn’s Executive MBA program has already exceeded my expectations. Auburn has perfected the ‘secret sauce’ with its strong emphasis on the cohort combined with outstanding professors. The materials and discussions are highly relevant and can be applied to my role immediately. I am also very impressed with the diversity of backgrounds in the cohort and the bond we all feel in such a short time.” Catherine Budzynski, EMBA ’22, Counsel, AFLAC Global Ventures

From an Auburn EMBA Alumna:

“The two years I spent as an Executive MBA student at Auburn was an incredibly rewarding experience. Earning this degree is not just about a career advancement and increased income.

This has been the best investment in myself I could ever make.”
