Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2018

One of Drexel Universities greatest features is the hybrid online/on-campus program option, offering so much flexibility to students like me. I commenced the graduate program in Information Systems as a full-time, on-campus student. My spouse and I had moved to Philadelphia from out of state and we welcomed our first child towards the end of my program's first year. The Drexel community was incredibly supportive and welcoming. I recall several professors who would check on me, the note-taking pregnant student sitting on the lecture hall steps, and yet, they kept the class moving right along. I was motivated so much by this that I took full classloads each semester! I think the challenge of managing that specific section of my life was enhanced by being treating well and with high expectations by my classmates, professors, advisers, family, and friends. Over my coursework, I have had excellent, super-responsive professors teaching from various field backgrounds and who are actively in the field of practice. This offers priceless networking opportunities for us students! I was accepted into Northwesterns Information Systems graduate program, but I looked beyond the immediate brand name recognition of NU. Drexels dynamic professors, cost-affordability, active student body (on- and off-campus), and well-regarded education made my choice clear. Emphasis in the classroom and online has always been competitive collaboration: Students innovate with each other and professors intensely and push each other to really grow as scholars. Students are supportive; the campus vibe is very family friendly and professional simultaneously. I would definitely recommend Drexel University to prospective undergraduates, graduates, and all other forms of students!

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

I notice most of the reviews are written by master students, and a lot are from business schools. OK, they might feel the tuition worth it. However, for me, I feel the PhD program, esp. the information studies, sucks. I am progressing very well in the project. In fact, I am one of the best students, 4.0 GPA, 5+ papers. The reason I hate it, is that, although it supports me for 5 years, it is only equivalent to less than 3.5 years. I cannot finish what I intend to finish, it is unlikely for me to end up in a good company. 1. the first-year class is philosophy, and it is totally useless. i get A for all, but I learned nothing. I never used in my research. it is entire year. 2. i am in a lab, doing data science without data. there is no data at all. we have to collect the data ourselves. when I see phds from other university are experiment over given data and important projects, I regret my decision to come to drexel. Take my advise. If you want to apply for Drexel PhD, esp. information science, think twice. Go to better universities, like Temple, it is at the same level, but in fact it is much better.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

Drexel University is an outstanding university for your graduate program needs. I am in a fully online MBA program and I feel that it is as effective as an in-person program, if not better. Every professor has their own teaching style and some courses are more demanding than others. There are discussion boards to help each other with the class our to have open discussions like you would in an in-person class, and there are also tools available to use so that you can video conference for a live online class or when you have to work on group projects. The professors are easy to contact and ask questions and are always friendly. I have referred a few fellow colleagues and friends to this university and program and they also enjoy it!

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2019

Arts Administration is an excellent program for a wide range of people. The program focuses on business within the Arts and how to market and fund-raise within the Art world. The program can be done completely online or in person. It is the perfect program to accommodate a plethora of different daily routines. Many students in the program have full time jobs and go back to school, with much success in this program.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

The faculty is supportive and genuinely interested in the student's academic success. The student body is diverse and collegiate. They've recently made some changes to their curriculum, which emphasizes teamwork and communication, clinical problem solving, in addition to, the use of information technology. Overall, I've enjoyed my experience.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

My college was difficult to afford as a blue collar student. I had to take out multiple loans. However, my faculty were engaging and intelligent; my coursework was excellent preparation for medical school; and it also allowed me to work while earning credits towards my degree.
