Overview
Drexel University

A great place to learn… A great place to work

Drexel University’s quantitative and qualitative growth in recent years is unsurpassed. Our success results from our commitment to three core principles: the integration of advanced technology into academics, the importance of experiential learning through our co-op program and the value of our Philadelphia location as a “living laboratory” for promoting civic engagement among our students.

Drexel is a private, coeducational urban research institution with a tradition of innovation in teaching and research. And today Drexel is implementing an innovative employee development program, StudentsFirst, to reinforce an organizational culture centered on our customers: the students.

With more than 5,300 employees, Drexel is the sixth-largest private employer in Philadelphia. We are seeking talented individuals to join our growing organization, which includes 13 colleges and schools and serves more than 17,500 students. Opportunities at all levels are available in diverse career fields including administration, information technology, finance and accounting, marketing, counseling, research, teaching, legal and health sciences.
