Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Excellent undergraduate educator that provides many "real-life" work opportunities in the form of co-ops. Master's degree programs tend to have less impact and attention on them from administrators and staff so it is easy to feel "forgotten about". In addition, Center City campus at Hanhemann needs updating badly.

Drexel was an incredible experience! My professors were passionate about their subjects and tailored the classes to our learning styles and potentials. The staff are incredibly friendly, the school offers assistance on so many levels and it is in a great location. I love Drexel!

I attended Drexel via their online program. It was a good program that challenged me and I feel comfortable knowing that my degree is from a top 10 college.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Although I attended Drexel to improve my med school applicant profile, I ended up taking a different direction. Fortunately, Drexel offered a few other pathways, and getting a MS Biology degree allowed me to add to my potential future professional repertoire. Still, the school could use with upgrading technologically, and not being a money mill for the medical school, especially using of the post-bacc programs.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I'm currently attending the EMBA program at Drexel. It's an excellent program and I would highly recommend it. It was recommended to me by someone I trust. I also did undergraduate at Drexel, studied engineering. I am very satisfied with the program so far and looking forward to learn more.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I have enjoyed my time at Drexel University. The college was highly recommended to me by a former graduate student so I decided to apply. My family and I appreciate the city of Philadelphia and visit often. Being a part of a university that expresses so much pride in it's history and students has made a difference to me in my educational path. I have the opportunity to experience instructors, professors, and students from all over the country in the classes I am currently taking. It is refreshing to learn from different perspectives and experiences. The professors I have had thus far are highly qualified and truly have a passion for their nursing career and are vested in supporting their students. I am very happy I chose to attend Drexel and I look forward to graduating and continuing my education at Drexel.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2018

Graduate programs at Drexel University's LeBow School of Business are great because they rely on a cohort system. This creates a chance to get to know your classmates very well early-on and allows group projects to come together naturally. Many business schools offer cohort programs exclusively for MBA students, but Drexel has made it universal. Professors work together to avoid scheduling conflicts for these cohorts and create curriculum that transitions seamlessly from introductory courses through the advanced level. They are dedicated to creating a true understanding of the material and helping students develop the skills they will need in the workplace. Drexel uses a quarter system instead of semesters so the workload is quite intensive. Professors make themselves available, themselves not assistants (TAs), to help students stay on track, and take advantage of every opportunity to share real world examples of the concepts being covered in class so that the material is never entirely abstract. I attended an ivy league university for my undergraduate degree and saw the majority of professors introduce their TA, distribute a syllabus and leave students to find their own way through the material. The academic support at Drexel really opened my eyes to what education could be. That being said, the greatest value of a Drexel degree is career support. Recruiters are on campus frequently and career advisors are always available. In my first month at Drexel, I received a one-on-one career counseling session, a resume review, a mock interview, and interviewed on campus with a Big 4 accounting firm who hired me before the end of that week. Some degree programs even allow students to take on 6-month paid internships called Co-Op's, at Fortune 500 companies around the country. To accommodate students who are working full-time already, many graduate courses are taught in the evening with the entire cohort scheduled to that course. Working students do not miss out on any part of the cohort experience and do not have to attend school as a part-time student or extend the time it takes to graduate, unless that is what they prefer. The only downside I have experienced at Drexel is a lack of diversity. The majority of graduate students are international students from China. They are very friendly and eager to learn more about America, but it is a stark difference from the more diverse undergraduate level and not in-line with what I have seen in my working life.
