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. The MBA is offered in full-time, part-time, online and executive formats. Most programs take advantage of Drexel’s 10-week quarters to streamline introductory accounting, finance and economics courses, while offering cross-disciplinary electives on topics such as corporate governance, reputation management, and entrepreneurship. 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 provides the MBA program in two part-time formats at three campuses. The options include the traditional part-time program taking 3- 4 years to complete and allows students to maximize their employer’s tuition remission. LEAD MBA Drexel LeBow’s accelerated MBA option, called LEAD, provides the same curriculum but does so in a co-horted, lock-step program completed in two years of evening classes. Classes are offered on Drexel's Main Campus in Philadelphia, as well as on satellite campuses in Malvern, Pa., and Sacramento, Calif. The LEAD MBA features a blended-delivery format that incorporates traditional and online classes. Classes are supplemented with clinics and workshops. LEAD MBA students are able to select electives that allow them to complete a concentration in: finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, healthcare, and business analytics. Drexel LeBow is seeking fully employed candidates with 5 years of work experience for this program. Tuition for the LEAD program is $54,000 Professional MBA - A Progressive MBA with Ultimate Flexibility 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.
