"From a professional development perspective, the Lehigh MBA contributed to my career growth potential."Why did you apply to the Lehigh University MBA program?
I chose Lehigh University to pursue my MBA because of the outstanding reputation of the school in the business community. I considered a few programs, but ultimately decided on Lehigh in no small part because of the utmost respect I have for my colleagues that are alumni of the program.
How has your MBA degree helped advance your professional career?
Lehigh provided me with a pragmatic learning experience that I was able to immediately and successfully leverage in my business career. On numerous occasions during my Lehigh MBA experience, I was able to help improve Crayola's value chain and help it to gain strategic supply chain advantages thanks to a few lessons learned while in the classroom.
