Lehigh's 36 credit hour program features an integrated core curriculum focused on synthesizing business disciplines and mirrors the global corporation as a whole. Business strategies are identified and explored from multiple standpoints through case studies, readings, simulations and team projects. A capstone course requires students to fully research, examine and analyze a selected company's strategies. In the first semesters, all students pursue core MBA classes that are team taught and explore the synergies between functional areas. In the summer between the core curriculum and the electives, an internship may be taken. If a student chooses not to pursue an internship they may continue with a concentration or elective courses of interest. Students may combine on line (select concentrations available online) and on campus classes to complete the degree, as well as satellite classes if they are employed by one of Lehigh's partner companies. International opportunities are available through our network of academic partners.
