LeBow College Named Among Forbes' 2009 'Best Business Schools'

August 06, 2009

Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business was one of only two business schools in the Greater Philadelphia region to be named among the top 65 schools in Forbes’ Best Business Schools 2009 ranking.  Forbes based this list of business schools “where your investment in an MBA pays off the most” on the return on investment (ROI) graduates have achieved five years after earning their MBA.

Forbes evaluated the investment achieved by alumni who received their MBA in 2004, comparing their earnings during the first five years after earning an MBA to their opportunity cost. 

“The Drexel MBA is committed to exceeding the needs of our students and alumni and is a key factor in their upward mobility, as evidenced by the achievements of our class of 2004,” said LeBow College of Business Dean George P. Tsetsekos, Ph.D. “The Forbes ranking further attests to the strong return on investment of the Drexel MBA, signifies our growing stature as one of the world’s leading resources for business education, and validates the rigorous experiential education, leadership assessment, and global perspective that LeBow provides for MBA candidates.”

Recognized by BusinessWeek as offering one of the top 10 part-time MBA programs in the nation, and by Entrepreneur-Princeton Review as No. 8 among graduate programs for entrepreneurs, Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business empowers, enriches and inspires future business leaders through an innovative, strategic approach to business education. LeBow College is accredited by AACSB International—the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Ranked by U.S.News & World Report as one of the best national doctoral universities, Drexel is one of fewer than 30 private universities classified by The Carnegie Foundation as Research Universities (high research activity).
