About the Program

The organizational management program at Drexel LeBow prepares students with the skills necessary to be successful in their careers, including leadership, communication, teamwork, cross-cultural sensitivity, negotiation, self-awareness, decision-making, and team leadership. These skills are highly coveted by employers and strongly complement core technical knowledge gained in majors such as finance, accounting, marketing and engineering.

The program provides a solid foundation of skills that are highly sought after in any field. The organizational management co-major can be paired with majors within LeBow or from other Drexel University colleges to help students develop these skills and succeed in their chosen field.

The organizational management co-major focuses on training students to:

  • Develop and exhibit leadership skills
  • Work in and develop diverse teams
  • Build relationships and networks
  • Communicate and negotiate effectively
  • Manage their careers

Courses cover a variety of skills necessary to excel in business with a focus on organizational management, including leadership, team development, negotiations and conflict resolution, human resource administration and organizational design. A hallmark of the courses within organizational management is their experiential and hands-on focus.  As an example, the Chapel Leadership Development simulation enables students to bring many of these skills to bear as they virtually climb Mt. Everest as a team. In addition, students can choose their area of focus with a wide variety of consulting courses or gain valuable insight into running an organization through a management simulation.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
