U.S. News & World Report has released its annual rankings of the Best Graduate Schools in business, education, engineering, law, nursing and medicine. Lehigh University ranked among the top schools on their 2023 Best Part-Time MBA Programs list. 

For the U.S. News rankings, almost 300 part-time MBA programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International were surveyed in fall 2021 and early 2022. The part-time rankings are based on five factors: average peer assessment score; average GMAT score and average GRE quantitative, verbal and analytical writing scores of part-time MBA students entering in fall 2021; average undergraduate GPA of part-time MBA students entering in fall 2021; number of years of work experience of part-time MBA students entering in fall 2021; and percentage of the business school’s fall 2021 total full-time and part-time MBA enrollment that is in the part-time MBA program. 

“The flexible pace of our part-time MBA program continues to pay huge dividends for our working professional students,” said Georgette Chapman Phillips, Kevin L. and Lisa A. Clayton Dean, Lehigh College of Business. “The integrated core curriculum, breadth of concentration offerings, ClassroomLIVE modality, and a faculty truly dedicated to excellence are all key factors in the positive response we continue to see. In fact, it is especially worthy to note that our Business Analytics concentration is growing in popularity, and we are excited about the prospects for our new Public Health concentration.”

The Lehigh FLEX MBA is designed to be completed at a part-time pace, on campus or synchronously online. The program is unique when compared to many other MBA programs because students who are working professionals can seamlessly attend on campus or online, with this flexibility available for all classes throughout their program. The FLEX MBA courses are offered synchronous through Lehigh’s online ClassroomLIVE platform. Students can decide the modality to attend on a class-by-class basis if they wish and in keeping with the demands of their professional work day or travel.
