Program Highlights


4+1 Program

The 4+1 program provides our undergraduate students the opportunity to earn two degrees in one stop. Couple your undergraduate degree with any one of our four business master’s degrees. How? You’ll begin taking graduate-level courses in your senior year to help you transition into a full, final year of graduate studies.



An internship is an opportunity to apply theory to practice. It’s a chance to gain perspective on what you learned in the classroom, self reflect, and 'try it out' before graduation. Moravian students have interned at all of the Big 4 accounting firms as well as other national and regional organizations including Independence Blue Cross and Disney World. Moravian students have also interned at amazing Lehigh Valley-based companies including Air Products, B Braun Medical, Boys and Girls Club of Bethlehem, Crayola, and many more. Moravian University is well connected in the community and ongoing business partnerships continue to expand internship opportunities.
