About The Program

Lehigh University’s College of Business offers a Master of Science (MS) degree in Applied Economics, which is STEM-designated. 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 PhD, the focal point of this program is on the Master's degree itself.

The Lehigh MS in Applied Economics offers the following:

  • Intimate interaction with professors and colleagues with very small class sizes
  • Recognized top quality instruction by faculty who have won university teaching awards
  • Current and relevant research continually being undertaken by faculty in their respective fields
  • Opportunity to supplement the educational experience with elective courses in finance, international relations, engineering, political science, mathematics, or marketing
  • Recent graduates of the program are employed at organizations such as AT&T, PPL Corp, Towers Perrin, KPMG, Merrill Lynch, U.S. Department of Labor, IBM, Geico, Morgan Stanley, Moody's Analytics, SEI Investments, Veritable, and Accenture; many students have also gone into Ph.D. programs at Lehigh University or at such schools as Carnegie Mellon, University of North Carolina, Harvard University, and Binghamton University
