"The application process was extremely applicant friendly...and I found the staff of the Graduate Programs Office to be helpful and patient."
In a competitive MBA landscape, what stood out about Lehigh?
I applied because I wanted to attend the best part-time program in my area. Of all the schools I reviewed within a short drive from Manhattan, Lehigh offered the most comprehensive program of study, the most flexible schedule, and a great diversity of students and faculty.
Can you talk about the "Lehigh advantage"?
When I interviewed with my current employer, they were impressed by the fact that I was getting my MBA and doing it on a part-time basis because it demonstrated effective time management skills. Balancing professional workload with personal educational goals is not something that comes easily, so I received my team's immediate respect when I was hired and continued to successfully manage both school and work projects. In the end, Lehigh opened up significant professional opportunities.
