International Baccalaureate Students
Drew Wants You!
Drew recognizes the value of students like you who have embraced the challenge of the IB diploma program and we invite you to complement the ambitious, intellectual journey you started in IB with our classically inspired—but purposefully modern and customizable—approach to learning.
Our combinations of majors and programs, hundreds of internships and research opportunities, one-of-a-kind NYC semesters, numerous study abroad offerings and personal mentoring by stellar faculty guarantees purpose-driven, experience-based career readiness for every student, steeped in a connection to a lifelong, worldwide community.
This is exemplified through Launch, our unique undergraduate experience, which ensures that every student graduates with a purpose, sought-after transferable skills, a network of mentors and an experience-based résumé. Every Drew student graduates with at least two résumé-ready applied experiences and a combination of transferable skills that work across all paths and careers. Guaranteed.
