The Drexel LeBow MBA is accredited and highly regarded for its cross-disciplinary elective courses, practical insights and entrepreneurial thinking that form the basis of a rigorous and comprehensive learning experience that will help you advance your career and achieve success in life. International residencies and other integrated experiences provide practical meaning and context to academic lessons, and a Drexel LeBow advisor helps each student develop a personal career-advancement plan based on his or her experience, strengths and goals. This customized, co-curricular skills training also connects MBA students with a prominent guest speakers and visitors, as well as with LeBow’s far-reaching network of alumni and other business leaders. In addition, LeBow College recognizes that being an entrepreneur is a way of thinking, and the MBA curriculum encourages innovative thought leadership that helps students and alumni stand apart from the crowd. Ninety percent of the Drexel LeBow full-time faculty are tenure-track academics who conduct path-breaking research; 10 percent are clinical faculty who bring first-hand lessons from business. Most have consulted or worked full-time for Fortune 500 companies, government agencies and other organizations. Many have international experience. Students in most of the Drexel LeBow MBA programs begin by taking accelerated and intensive introductory courses in accounting, finance and economics. That is followed by a core that consists of nine required classes in fields such as marketing, management, statistics, organizational behavior and other subjects. Students then choose from elective courses offered by our Centers of Excellence in corporate governance, corporate reputation management, entrepreneurship and strategic leadership. Students also select classes offered by the concentration of their choice: finance, entrepreneurship and innovation management, marketing or business analytics. The Drexel LeBow MBA is accredited and highly regarded for its cross-disciplinary elective courses, practical insights and entrepreneurial thinking that form the basis of a rigorous and comprehensive learning experience that will help you advance your career and achieve success in life. The new program, launching in September 2011, also includes a co-curricular skills-building component, in which students are offered customized sets of workshops, training and speaking engagements designed to aid their career advancement, and it introduces two a new area of concentration, business analytics, to the previous concentrations in finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, Healthcare, and Business Analytics. The new elective courses mark the first time that Drexel LeBow has directly integrated its Centers of Excellence into the curriculum. The Centers of Excellence will continue to facilitate faculty research and host programs that bring executives and academics together to explore business challenges. These new electives will give unprecedented access for students to take courses offered through Drexel LeBow’s Center for Corporate Governance, Center for Corporate Reputation Management, Baiada Center for Entrepreneurship, and Sovereign Institute for Strategic Leadership. The new Drexel LeBow MBA also includes a co-curricular skills-building component in which each student will be offered a customized set of training in skills ranging from budgeting and negotiating to evaluating staff and working with boards.
