1-MBA Ranks in Top 5 Nationally 

U.S. News & World Report has identified Lehigh University’s 1-MBA program as ranking 5th in the United States in salary-to-debt ratio. The publication recently evaluated MBA programs by the highest return on investment by examining starting salary-to-debt ratio from its 2023-2024 Best Business Schools (MBA) ranking. 

“We have fervently communicated the long-term value an MBA program has over one’s career, but for many prospective MBA students, the short-term return on investment is top of mind,” says Kevin Ezzell, senior director graduate recruitment and admissions. “This is an excellent example of how a top 100 MBA program like the Lehigh Business 1-MBA sees top five outcomes when examining post-MBA starting salary to incurred debt.”
