W. P. Carey School of Business strategic plan

The W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University has embarked on an ambitious strategic planning process that will build on our existing foundation and shape the future of the school for years to come. The schoolwide process will examine key areas of growth and opportunity, and is led by incoming Dean Ohad Kadan, with guidance from school leadership and input from key constituencies, including students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and corporate/community partners.

The W. P. Carey School of Business strategic plan reflects both where we are and where we are going. The school’s vision and mission capture our commitments to advance the school and all members of our community — students, alumni, staff, faculty, and partners within ASU and around the world.


We transform the world through access, excellence, and innovation in business knowledge. We are the W. P. Carey School of Business, where business is personal.
