lehigh 5 year MBA

<p>Does lehigh offer a 5 year MBA program for undergrads? Also, how is the computer science program?</p>

<p>No, the Lehigh MBA program has a 2-year work experience requirement, post-baccalaureate (Lehigh</a> University: CBE: Academics: Graduate: The Lehigh MBA: Admissions: Apply: Application Requirements).</p>

<p>I happen to be a CS (in Engineering) major, but since I've spent the first year focusing on completing the engineering core, I haven't taken any actual CS courses yet. The closest I've come to CS is Engr1 (Engineering Computations), a beginner programming course that takes the place of Intro to Comp Sci (CSE15) for majors in the engineering college. This course isn't taught by CS faculty and focuses more on programming for scientific utility and practicality versus the typical intro class that focuses more on establishing a CS foundation and fundamental programming ability. Both classes have their advantages and disadvantages. As such, I can't really talk about any personal observations on the curriculum yet.</p>

<p>That being said, I can talk about the program from what I've investigated myself and other's experiences.</p>

<p>First off, there are many computer science degree options. There's CS (BA) in the college of arts and sciences, CS (BS) in the college of arts and science, CS (BS) in the college of engineering, Comp Eng in the college of engineering, and the major I think you might be very interested in given your five-year MBA question, CSB (Computer Science and Business) which is housed in both the college of engineering and college of business.</p>

<p>All of the programs (except the BA, I believe) are accredited by ABET. All the programs fulfill the same CS foundation courses (Lehigh</a> University - CSE: Undergraduate Programs) but differ in non-CS requirements. CSB is special because it is both an accredited CS and business degree. I also know that it has an incredibly high job placement rate (near 100 percent upon graduation I believe). For more information on the program: Lehigh</a> University - CSE: B.S. in Computer Science & Business .</p>

<p>From what I've heard from others in the various programs, most of the professors are good at teaching. Also, since it isn't an incredibly large school, they are pretty available to students. Many professors are pretty well-respected in the field and have pretty neat research projects going on too, if that interests you. The core CS curriculum is comparable to most other schools: an intro class, data structures, intro to comp eng, systems programming, comp. architecture, software engineering, discrete math, programming languages, operating systems, and algorithms. It should prepare you for employment or grad school just as well as most other programs.</p>
