The College of Business and Economics (CBE) is committed to preparing our graduates to be outstanding citizens and well educated business leaders. We’re able to accomplish this by offering a rich array of basic business and interdisciplinary courses, taught by professors committed to the highest standards of excellence in teaching. An innovative and flexible approach to programming that incorporates cutting-edge technology strongly positions our students for success in today’s evolving business climate. Our goal is to prepare students for not just their first jobs, but their last one, as well.
The CBE offers degree and non-degree programs in undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional education. The business and accounting programs are accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). We are proud of this distinction in that it is held by only twenty-five percent of business schools in the United States.
Located in the beautiful Lehigh Valley, with a vibrant arts and culture community, Lehigh's College of Business and Economics is midway between New York and Philadelphia afforded students unprecedented access to leading business centers in the Mid Atlantic.
Our 1-MBA is a new program as of January 2017. Candidates in this program will pursue their degree full-time over a 12 month period. This program is unique in that it only takes one year to complete, but candidates begin in January and have room for a summer internship. The three member mentoring team is another innovative feature of this program to assist candidates with internships and job placement.
