The Dana and David Dornsife Office for Experiential Learning leverages Drexel LeBow’s expertise in experience-based education to shape the academic experience for our students.

The Dornsife Office supports co-curricular activities and innovative curricula to help students better understand the connections between theory and practice.

By facilitating business and cultural experiences both domestically and internationally, the Dornsife Office increases students’ business knowledge and cultural awareness, further preparing them for leadership positions.

The Dornsife Office seeks to expand existing experience-based initiatives, as well as develop new ones, to enhance the quality of LeBow’s academic programs.

Consulting Opportunities

Through consulting courses, students work with actual clients to find viable solutions to their business challenges.

Experiential Courses

From investing the University’s endowment to international residencies to simulations, experiential courses take students out of the classroom, blend theory and practice and promote engagement with industry and community.

The Dragon Fund

Students enrolled in Applied and Advanced Portfolio Management manage Drexel LeBow’s equity portfolio, which consistently outperforms its benchmark.

International Residencies

LeBow’s strong international partnerships provide global opportunities for students to study the dimensions of international business and develop a better understanding the political and business environments in the countries visited.

Case Competitions

Participation in case competitions enables LeBow students to think strategically about real-world projects and network with industry leaders. Students often compete for job/internship opportunities and prizes.

Business Simulations

Vigorous, team-building events connect the classroom with the conference room and encourage students to cooperate in interactive groups to apply theory, leadership skills and practical communication proficiency to real-world business challenges.
