Executive Education Overview

Overview

Why Lehigh

Founded by industrial pioneer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Asa Packer, Lehigh is among the nation's premier research universities. A groundbreaker in interdisciplinary education, it was ranked sixth in the nation in The Economist’s college rankings, which looked at the earning power of a school’s graduates. With a reputation for creativity, innovation, and interaction, Lehigh engages its students at the highest levels.

This same emphasis on engagement and innovation is found at the schools’ Vistex Institute for Executive Learning and Research. The Institute leverages the knowledge of Lehigh’s award-winning faculty in a range of programs for individuals and organizations. Valuing the time constraints of today’s busy executives, the programs are highly focused and take place over just one or two days. 

Located in the heart of the Lehigh Valley, Lehigh provides an exceptional learning environment. Situated between New York and Philadelphia, it is easily accessible from southern New York, New Jersey, northeastern Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Bethlehem, known for its rich history and its current economic and cultural renaissance, has a walkable downtown that offers a thriving arts district, cosmopolitan food scene, historic sights, and museums.
