Lehigh Flex MBA Program Expands Partnership with United Nations

Scholarships bring added benefits to UN employees. 

Lehigh has announced that partial funding for the Flex MBA program is now available to UN employees. 

Designed for working professionals, the Flex MBA is ranked No. 4 in the United States for the online format.

The program allows students to continue in their current positions at the UN and still pursue a highly regarded degree in a real time format. Courses are delivered via the ClassroomLIVE platform and students log in and participate in a synchronous online environment.

"I am delighted that the College of Business continues to expand our partnership with the United Nations in very creative and mutually beneficial ways," said Bill Hunter, director of Fellowship Advising and UN Programs at Lehigh University.  "Lehigh’s MBA program’s proactive approach to providing educational opportunities for our UN colleagues worldwide has become a hallmark of our UN NGO association." 

This 36-credit hour program can be completed on average in about 3.5 years, depending on a student’s educational background and pace in taking courses. Affordably priced, Lehigh’s Flex MBA total tuition is $39,990, excluding any prerequisites. Part-time MBA funding for UN employees in varying amounts is based on merit and need. Students may be offered funding ranging from five to seven credit hours each year. The Flex MBA program director will advise students on a plan schedule based on the student’s work/life balance, financial needs and career goals. 

 “At Lehigh Business, our Flex MBA program prepares our students to take on problem-solving challenges that enable them to grow as future policy leaders," said Oliver Yao, associate dean for Graduate programs at Lehigh's College of Business. "Our ClassroomLIVE synchronous platform enables the working professional to attend classes in a seamless fashion. At Lehigh, we pride ourselves on providing the very type of learning environment that not only takes advantage of today’s communications technologies, but enables students the convenient access to a world-renowned faculty.” 

Students utilizing tuition reimbursement through their organizations must use that first before funding is offered. Interested individuals must apply to the program and be admitted before funding is determined and disbursed.
