You Save Money with Our One Year MBA Program

A full-time MBA program at top schools costs almost $200,000 on average, according to the Financial Times. Furthermore, the opportunity cost (the money you miss out on while you're in the classroom instead of at a job) is estimated at an additional $123,000.

The one year MBA program at Lehigh is different because the length of the program is shorter, saving you money on tuition and lowering your opportunity cost. We know your time is valuable.
