"My advice to other international students is to take advantage of the small size of the Lehigh community, which makes the experience of living and studying at Lehigh extremely personal and enriching."
As an international student, why did you choose to study at Lehigh?
I chose Lehigh University because of the strength of its faculty, the flexibility to structure my own area of study, and the close proximity to both New York and Philadelphia, which helps Lehigh attract some of the world's largest companies during recruiting.
What is the most important skill you learned at Lehigh?
The biggest skill I learned from the MBA has been the ability to think strategically, look at the big picture, and then form an opinion of how my actions will influence the overall strategic objectives of the firm.
