The Lehigh University College of Business and Economics recently announced a brand new addition to its One Year MBA (1-MBA) program, with a STEM concentration in business analytics.

According to the official school website, the “15-credit program specifically designed to give students exposure to business data collection, storage and retrieval, predictive models, and the applications for improved decision-making in today’s modern, data-rich organizations. This is the first concentration offered in the 1-MBA program.”

The new inclusion is important for potential international applicants, who can earn a 24-month stay in the U.S. via the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program for STEM-related employment.

Oliver Yao, Associate Dean for Graduate Programs, says, “The existing 1-MBA curriculum has a rigorous core curriculum, so adding the business analytics concentration builds on our strong foundation, while also positioning our students for further success in their employment endeavors.”

Georgette Chapman Phillips, Dean of the Lehigh University College of Business, also adds, “The rapid advancement in information technology has created a data rich environment for organizations in all sectors. How to collect data, how to evaluate data collection methods and sources, and how to use the data to gain business insights and improve decision-making are the challenges faced by today’s intuitive managers. At Lehigh Business, we prepare our students to take on such challenges and grow as future business leaders.”
