Program Description:

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. Drexel LeBow offers two online MBA options: a traditional MBA and one geared toward the pharmaceutical industry.

LeBow College of Business' MBA Anywhere optimizes not only your time with the flexibility of its online delivery, but also your leadership potential. In this 24-month, part-time, cohort-formatted program, the emphasis in leadership, ethics, and technology management will prepare you to start a new and exciting career or get ahead in the one you already have. The Cohort segment consists of 51 credits over 19 courses and features three on-site seminars, also known as residencies. The on-site seminars are three- to four-day, intensive courses. All of these seminars are located on Drexel's Main Campus in Philadelphia. The cohort segment is a prescribed sequence of courses that takes place over a period of 24 months. You progress through this sequence of courses with the same group of students. This allows you to develop meaningful relationships with your fellow classmates. These relationships in turn facilitate course activities that require teamwork, and they lay the foundation for what is essentially a learning community. The cohort model is a proven adult education method and it serves online students well, given the importance of social interaction in the learning process.
