What precautions is LeBow taking to protect the health and safety of the students attending Camp Business?

The safety and health of our community remains a top priority. Drexel University and the LeBow College of Business explicitly follow all health and public safety guidelines from state and local officials. Learn more by visiting Drexel’s Response to Coronavirus website.

Will on-campus housing be available to students participating in Camp Business?

Housing will be available during the residential session in summer 2023.

Are meals provided?

For the commuter session, lunch will be provided daily. For the residential session, all meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) will be provided daily.

Am I permitted to miss a day of camp?

Due to the nature of the programs and the required teamwork, attendance for all days is mandatory. If you have a special circumstance that will require you to be absent on any day during your program, you must notify us of this as soon as it becomes known to you. Unapproved absences will result in dismissal from the program.

Are international students able to attend?

Yes. Every year we welcome students from around the world and look forward to all the different perspectives that are brought to the courses. As all courses are taught in English, we do require a video conference interview as part of the application process to ensure they are comfortable with the language and make sure they will be successful in the program.

Please also check any necessary travel restrictions/recommendations for your country of residence coming to and from the United States.

What is appropriate attire for my program?

Appropriate attire for all programs is casual wear or business casual. Examples of business casual include collared shirts, blouses, non-denim slacks, skirts and dresses. Closer to the start of camp, all residential participants will receive a “what to pack” list as well as what days business casual wear will be needed. All commuter participants will be notified in advance which days business casual wear will be needed.

If I am participating in the commuter session and need accommodations, where should I look?

Drexel has negotiated discounted rates with hotels located in Philadelphia for faculty, professional staff and current students for business travel. Prospective students and their families that are visiting the University may also book rooms at the discounted rates.

Where and for what dates and times should I book my airfare or train?

We recommend flying into Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) which is about a 15-minute drive to campus. Newark (EWR) is an alternative but is about a 2-hour drive to campus.

If you are taking a train, we recommend traveling via Amtrak to William H. Gray III 30th Street Station (about a ten minute walk to campus).

Please book an itinerary that guarantees your arrival to campus no later than 10:00am ET on the opening day of camp. For departures, we recommend no earlier than 4:00pm on the last day of camp to ensure you are able to attend our closing festivities.
