Major: Other (This Major's Salary over time)
Arizona State University (or as it should be better known, Fork U.) absolutely hindered me in my career. ASU initially prevented me from continuing in my major. My initial graduate degree (M.S., high GPA) turned out to be COMPLETELY and UTTERLY WORTHLESS when it came to finding employment. Eventually I went back to study in another field (an engineering program). The department was unbelievably run - there were course requirement changes (a frequently-encountered issue at Fork U), one class was illegally rescheduled in mid-semester for a month, and several profs did not have adequate English speech fluency. One professor (completely unintelligible) was allowed to teach a senior course, putting at risk nearly the entire senior class majoring in that field. There were obvious issues involving kid-glove treatment of repeat cheaters (most of which were international students).

After years of dealing with Fork U, 'the only game in town' for all too many Arizona residents, I will never, ever, ever again either deal with ASU or recommend any ASU dept. at any level to anyone I know. Consider anyplace else - you will save yourself a ton of aggravation, time, and money.

questionHow do they have the ability to claim WP Carey as ranked #25 in the world? Is that a lie?
responseThe short answer is yes.
The long answer is that mostly I dealt with the engineering school, not the business school (WP Carey). I had a couple of classes through WP Carey. I found the administration and faculty there to be more rational and reasonable - when ASU faculty finally took the lid off the cheating issues it was faculty at WP Carey that spoke out (and notably NOT engineering).

However, #25? In the world? I don't think so - figure the US alone has at least 20 better business schools (with more to be found in the UK, Australia, Canada and the EU) and many more superior undergraduate programs for business preparation. ASU generally works very hard at its press, advertising, and social 'connections' and not nearly as much at scholastic rigor and accomplishment.
