MS Management Students Participate in Lutron Career Trek

By: Anna Simoneau

The class of 2019 Masters in Management students recently completed their first Career Trek to Lutron on Friday, September 7. Lutron is a multinational electronics company headquartered in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania. Lutron Founder Joel Spira invented the dimmer switch in 1959 and incorporated Lutron in 1961. Today, Lutron offers thousands of lighting and smart home devices and systems.  

Career Treks are off-campus field trips to businesses with the intention of giving students the opportunity to explore various industries and have valuable networking opportunities while they search for jobs.

At Lutron, students learned about the workings of the company through a company tour, received career advice from a panel session of Lutron employees representing a variety of job functions, and networked with recent Lehigh University graduates at Lutron.

In the past, Lehigh has had Career Treks at Independence Blue Cross, Saint Gobain, URBN Outfitters, Amazon, Martin Guitar, Lutron, and Zulily. Future Career Treks are being organized with AT&T, Amazon, Prudential, and St. Luke’s Health Network.
