Experiential Learning for MBA Students

Our MBA programs offer a practical, hands-on approach to learning that is applicable to working professionals and supports both advanced and early career development. Experiential components help bring concepts to life and develop skills and experience necessary for success.

At LeBow, the true meaning of experiential learning through our hands-on MBA program is put into practice both inside and outside the classroom. Classroom experiences include simulations, consulting projects and teamwork. Outside the classroom students take the experience even further engaging in local and international residencies, internships, speakers, workshops and competitions — to harness skills, apply real world MBA knowledge and bring learning to life.

Graduate Consulting

As part of the experiential component, Drexel graduate students work with and present solutions to various business clients to address their business challenges.
