College to Career
The Master of Science in Management (M2) program is all about preparing you for the job you really want. It paves the path from college to career by building a business skill toolbox that helps you define your career goals, sharpen your business acumen and receive the experiential learning that sets you apart. Designed for students with a non-business undergraduate degree, M2 provides the perfect launch pad for a positive and rewarding career trajectory.
Experiences inside and outside the classroom make you a more valuable asset to a broad range of organizations and roles. A comprehensive two week orientation defined by exposure to professional development and business leaders provide context for the program.
Are You Eligible?
If you are pursuing or recently received a degree in Liberal Arts, STEM fields or Economics and have limited or no full-time post-graduate work experience, M2 enables you to brandish your undergraduate degree with the widely renowned business education at Lehigh University.
During a two week pre-term orientation, you will enhance your executive presence through comprehensive communications and presentation skills workshops. You will build teamwork and leadership skills and gain valuable cross-cultural skills. Exposure to business executives, live case studies and networking opportunities enable you to identify career opportunities, learn about the recruiting process, refine your resume and polish your personal brand.
