LeBow College's recognition as a best business school reflects the fact that the College meets The Princeton Review's criteria for academic excellence, as well as positive feedback from students, as student surveys weighed heavily in this ranking.

In the survey, one MBA student said LeBow's active MBA Association is the "greatest asset of the school," because it offers "networking events, organizes social outings in Philadelphia, finds professional networking opportunities for fellow students, establishes and administers clubs, holds weekly happy hours, liaises between the students and the administration, organizes field trips, and has many other events."
Another MBA student said that the LeBow Career Services Office is "very helpful in providing pointers to enhance my resume as well as providing contact information for companies of interest."
Drexel University's LeBow College of business has a reputation for excellence. With a strong foundation in theory, exposure to the latest technology, and through valuable professional experience, LeBow's business programs are respected worldwide, and Drexel co-ops provide students with the kind of inside look into the business world that few schools can match.
