Computer Science and Business students at Lehigh University enroll—and are assigned faculty advisors—in both colleges. Students completing this demanding program are awarded a unique joint degree from both colleges. It equips students with the high-tech and business skills they need at a time when the boundaries between the two fields are becoming increasingly blurred.


The CSB program offers these key advantages:

  • Depth in curriculum: The program is the only one of its kind to be accredited in both computer science and in business. Students obtain the skills and training needed to understand business functions and business-related problems, to analyze business-user information needs, to design computer-based information systems and to implement systems solutions in business organizations.
  • Balance: The program requires CSB students to complete all the core courses required for a business degree and all the courses required for a B.S. in computer science. Students can select a concentration in any of several areas, such as finance, accounting, economics and various areas of computer science.
  • Meeting market demand: Companies have been very actively recruiting CSB graduates.
