Typically, one VENTURESeries course is offered each month, which is held over two consecutive days on a single, back-to-back Friday/Saturday.

The only exception is Business Plan I (Fall Semester) and Business Plan II (Spring Semester). Each lasts an entire semester. These courses are project-based and taken in sequence, with one leading into the other. Business Plan I begins with two evening workshops to cover work protocols and deliverables. A full business plan for a new venture of your choosing will be completed at the end of Business Plan II.

All VENTURESeries classes are held in the Rauch Conference Center on the Lehigh University campus. Course materials are made available on the VENTURESeries website approximately one month in advance. MBA candidates may have required pre-class and post-class written assignments to complete as part of course grading.
