MBA and Engineering

Graduate Degrees offered: M.B.A. and Engineering


Lehigh's interdisciplinary program in Business Administration and Engineering (MBA&E) meets the diverse but converging needs of business and engineering by offering students the chance to acquire a solid foundation in both fields.

Key features of the program include:

  • The opportunity to learn skills necessary to achieve a competitive edge in an age when business decisions rarely involve only one area of a company;
  • Concentrations in finance, management, marketing and supply-chain management, and in chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial, manufacturing systems, mechanical, and materials science engineering;
  • Classes in which students work with a wide variety of professionals on real-world problems.

Graduates of the MBA&E program will be prepared to assume leadership positions in industrial planning, venture capital, and engineering management, and become senior managers in roles requiring both technical and business acumen.

Classes are taught in an interactive manner by faculty who are leaders in their field and have a wealth of practical experience.

The MBA&E program is designed primarily for students with an undergraduate degree in engineering. Applicants are required to have two years of professional work experience and must be accepted by both the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science and the College of Business and Economics. Applicants can, however, take engineering courses while they are fulfilling the work requirement.
