PhD Business & Economics  >  Admissions  



Congratulations on the first step in your journey toward a bright future and rewarding career.

How do you find the right fit when searching for an MS or PhD program? You consider things such as class size, faculty accomplishments and accessibility and rank highly the ability to network. You value AACSB accreditation, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, an achievement that less than 5% of business schools internationally have reached. At Lehigh you will find a program that combines the intimacy of a small school with the quality and connections of a large one. Our students tell us that they value the one on one time with faculty and the attention they get from administration and staff. They appreciate the connections they make with the business community and alumni at events and meetings.

Recent gifts enable us to offer some of the finest learning facilities including a wireless, state of the art Financial Services Laboratory which utilizes real time financial data, allowing students to create value from theory.

Our Career Services Office presents opportunities to both full- and part-time students, including resume updating and interview coaching. The office coordinates internships, on campus interviews and maintains a job database for firms that wish to interview candidates directly.

In addition to the professional development opportunities that Career Services offers, Lehigh's College of Business and Economics also offers a ten-day immersion program abroad where students participate in academic lectures, hear from senior level executives and attend government presentations. This year, students will be traveling to Athens, Greece to study the European financial crisis and depending on your program can be taken for credit.

If you have any questions or concerns after you’ve perused the website, please feel free to contact me directly on any medium you're most comfortable with: via email, or by phoning 610-758-4450.  

Thank you for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best Regards,
