The Lehigh 1-MBA program is designed for professionals who wish to either pivot their careers toward a business-related area, which may not be in their previous field of employment, or accelerate their career growth within their chosen field. Its rigorous curriculum includes the functional areas of business and embraces the shared value model that recognizes various stakeholders in today‚Äôs high-tech, modern societies. Students will fully immerse themselves into the program by temporarily stepping away from their profession to focus solely on their studies.

The one-year duration of this full-time, cohort program model, when compared to the traditional two-year, full-time model, significantly reduces the opportunity costs of those who forego their current employment to attend.
