We take our career work for our Lehigh Graduate Business students seriously by providing students with not only the foundational mindset, programs, tools and concepts to manage themselves through the MSAE transitional year but also in their leadership career journeys ahead.

Through group work and one-to-one highly customized sessions, we begin the MS in Applied Economics Career Journeys with creating personal branding, telling professional stories, preparing for mock interviews and interviews, diagnosing and activating networks, developing career options and negotiating job offers — and pulling it all together with a marketplace transitional presentation from former alumni to make MSAE students aware of what is ahead in their new organizations, roles and marketplaces – as they transition themselves from graduate students to business professionals.

By applying their technical and professional skills, MSAE students prepare for professional development opportunities such as networking conversations, mock interviews and career events to navigate their career journeys. Students attend program-specific events that help them expand their networks and explore opportunities with companies to leverage their curriculum. With connections to New York and Philadelphia, MS in Applied Economics students gain a unique learning experience by connecting classroom concepts to real-world experiences with partner companies through the Lehigh Business Center for Supply Chain Research at Lehigh and the Center for Digital Marketing Strategy and Analytics. This well established and intimate program enables students to strengthen their career identities in the area of business management, helping organizations make better business decisions and driving positive change.
