Ambition Can't Wait

“Good things come to those who wait,” said no one who ever attended Drexel University. The world waits for no one, especially these days. So Drexel isn’t designed for waiting. We’re here to turn your ambition into achievement.

Co-op Facts & Stats

At Drexel, you won’t just learn about career possibilities, you’ll experience them. Unlike most universities, Drexel takes students outside of the classroom.

Students return to Drexel with unique insight that enhances the classroom dynamic in exciting and meaningful ways.
