Drexel LeBow Executive Master of Business Administration

Real-world education for changemakers.

In a world demanding change, today’s leaders need to be and do more than ever before. Drexel LeBow’s AACSB-accredited Executive MBA (EMBA) addresses the changing needs of industry and our students through an enhanced program and format, empowering executives, entrepreneurs and professionals to apply new strategic concepts immediately and transform their organizations and communities.

The Drexel EMBA’s accelerated — but not abbreviated — part-time, 16-month curriculum spans three calendar years and accommodates students’ busy work and personal schedules, reducing their time away from work and family while equipping them with the tools to maximize their impact and expand their networks.
