Academics at Drexel University encompass a breadth of Colleges and Schools whose programs are designed to provide the foundation of study enriched by experiential learning to produce the next generation of scholars, professionals, and leaders. LeBow College of Business fits squarely into that tradition. Noted strengths of the MBA program include “a pragmatic approach to real-world application.” Offering a “strong and dynamic curriculum” that “stresses practical education,” LeBow offers “a solid emphasis on business analysis processes with a strong technology background as well.” Practical application is delivered through “case studies and other real-life simulations” that “help in applying concepts and attaining a better understanding of how to approach a given situation.” Students in the full-time MBA program also benefit from a three-month summer co-op program that provides hands-on experience while “helping students learn more about the industries in which they might wish to pursue a career.”

Part-time and full-time students will find numerous options at LeBow. The school offers a one-year full-time MBA. Those unable to attend daytime classes will likely prefer the two-year evening cohorted Accelerated MBA offered in the Philadelphia campus and in the suburban Malvern, PA location. LeBow also offers a more traditional part-time At-YourOwn-Pace MBA and two online part-time MBAs. The online MBA is a conventional parttime cohort MBA delivered online over twenty-four months (one on-campus residency and a midpoint online consulting residency is required). The second is the Online Flex MBA, with a 3.5 year degree completion time to allow for a lighter course schedule. All programs operate on a fast-paced quarterly academic calendar that allows “more chances to take courses during a year,” and all programs place “a strong emphasis on leadership.”

Students praise the LeBow administration, reporting that the school “appears to be pouring a lot of money into the marketing of the LeBow brand. That will likely produce more of a return for [us] upon graduation.” One MBA happily tells us, “The administration could not make the process any easier to prevent any type of potential distraction from your academics. If you wish to pursue further study in a discipline or make local contacts in a discipline they are always there to help.” Likewise, professors “are really open to meeting with students and discussing classroom ideas in a different context. They enjoy getting to know their students and sharing their own experiences.” Faculty members “bring realworld issues to classroom for discussions and potential problem solutions. Some even share their consultancy experiences with the students. Overall, it is highly stimulating and excellent learning experience.”
