U.S. News & World Report has released its annual rankings of online MBA programs. Up 6 spots from 2018, Lehigh has moved up in the rankings to No. 13 on its 2019 Best Online MBA Programs list.

“The entire faculty and staff in the Lehigh College of Business and Economics is thrilled about the positive response to the Lehigh FLEX MBA Program offering,” said Associate Dean Oliver Yao.

Lehigh attributes its FLEX MBA program’s strong reputation in large part to faculty committed to driving student excellence through an integrated core curriculum. The Lehigh graduate program faculty is highly accessible and responsive, thus creating the most rewarding graduate-level educational experience for Lehigh’s FLEX MBA students.  

For the 2019 rankings, U.S. News and World Report ranked online MBA programs using five categories: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training and student services and technology. Each program is assessed in these categories using ranking indicators. Scores for each ranking indicator is calculated from data that was reported to U.S. News and World Report by the program, as well as by peer reputation survey collection. The breadth and depth of the Lehigh Online MBA experience is reflected through strong scores in these ranking categories.

The Lehigh FLEX MBA Program is designed for working professionals and can be completed on campus or online. The program is truly flexible when compared to traditional on-campus only MBA programs because students can seamlessly attend classes either on campus or online, at any time throughout the program.

The Lehigh FLEX MBA courses are offered through a live, online platform, ClassroomLIVE. The integrated, web-based learning environment delivers programs in real-time from classrooms on Lehigh’s campus synchronously to students in their homes, offices or hotel rooms when traveling. Students interact live with professors and other students during the class as it’s actually taking place on campus.

“This is truly a win-win for the busy, working professional,” echoed Associate Dean Yao.
