HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – Sanjay Shah, a 1989 MBA, alumnus, entrepreneur, and founder and CEO of VIstex Inc., has committed a $5- million gift to elevate Executive Education at Lehigh University’s College of Business and Economics.

This gift will name the new Vistex Institute for Executive Learning and Research and allow the university and the college to move forward with an ambitious plan to strengthen engagements with industry and business.

Plans for a new state-of-the-art home for the institute are under way. In 1999, Shah founded the Chicago-based global software company Vistex Inc., which has grown into a worldwide operation with 20 offices and 1,300 employees.

“Mr. Shah’s generous gift will enhance Lehigh’s ability to deliver high-quality executive education designed to strengthen the skills required of business and industry leaders today,” said John Simon, president of Lehigh University.

The Vistex Institute for Executive Learning and Research, under the direction of Executive Director David Welsh, will focus on having research serve as the core foundation for the content and teaching in each class.

The research will tap into timely and relevant business trends to enhance the learning environment and provide pertinent experience for program participants.

In addition to the newly branded executive education program, the College of Business and Economics boasts nationally top-ranked undergraduate and part-time MBA programs, an innovative one-year MBA, an array of graduate degree programs, and a number of joint/dual MBA programs.


“We thank Mr. Shah for supporting the growth of Lehigh’s executive education programs,” said Phillips.

“Our shared vision for the Vistex Institute for Executive Learning and Research is sure to make it a go-to resource for comprehensive educational solutions for managers and executives, while harnessing the practical and real-world approach to education, which is the hallmark of the College of Business and Economics at Lehigh.”
