Lehigh University’s College of Business offers a STEM-designated MS degree in Applied Economics. It is a relatively rare economics program because it is one of the few business-school-offered programs that is completely focused on the Masters level. While there is the option to apply to continue toward a Ph.D., the focal point of this program is on the Master's degree itself.
