Lehigh's MBA & Engineering Program is intended for engineers looking to advance into leadership roles
An MBA in Engineering prepares graduates for leadership positions in industrial planning, venture capital, and engineering management; and as senior managers in roles requiring both technical and business acumen. The Lehigh FLEX MBA is committed to developing leaders in business and in industry with the MBA & Engineering degree (MBA & E) option. The MBA & E unites two premier programs in one powerful joint degree by offering a solid foundation in both business and engineering.
The 45 credit hour program is taught in an interactive manner by faculty who are leaders in their fields with a wealth of practical experience; it also combines core business courses and a core of engineering courses:
