When New Media Marketing, a digital marketing overview course, launched at LeBow in 2012, it was met with intrigue both on campus and online. The hybrid class features digital marketing concepts, frameworks, best practices and real-world case studies from local and national experts in the space.
For the fifth year in a row, the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia asked a group of LeBow MBA students to conduct market research for its lovely and lively Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival, a celebration of the coming of spring and Japanese food and culture with 12 days of events all over the city and suburbs.
Drexel LeBow recently honored several faculty members, Ph.D. students and staff with awards for their outstanding teaching and research.
