The highly ranked online business programs offered by Temple's Fox School of Business feature cutting-edge technology, meaningful student engagement and top faculty.
For the second straight year, the Online MBA program in Temple University’s Fox School of Business is ranked No. 1 in the nation. 
 
The Fox Online MBA repeated its perfect score of 100 in U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 ranking of the country’s best online MBA programs. This year, the program holds the top spot on its own after having shared the honor in 2015 with University of North Carolina and Indiana University.
 
In the same report, Fox’s Online Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program received a No. 6 national ranking, jumping 25 spots to earn the highest ranking in program history.
 
U.S. News scored online MBA and BBA programs based on faculty credentials and training, peer reputation, student engagement, and student services and technology. Admissions selectivity for MBA programs was also a factor in the rankings. 
 
“The Fox Online MBA and BBA programs connect cutting-edge technology and accredited, high-impact curricula with an internationally recognized faculty to foster a dynamic learning community,” said Fox School of Business Dean M. Moshe Porat. “These rankings speak to the work of our Online and Digital Learning team, which delivers the best advancements in technology for a quality, online-format education.” 
 
For example, students have access to the Video Vault, which is a vital resource of the program, said Darin Kapanjie, academic director of the Online MBA and BBA programs. The vault offers a searchable collection of more than 1,800 high-definition, mobile-friendly and transcribed academic videos produced by Fox faculty.
 
“These U.S. News & World Report rankings would not have been possible without Fox’s commitment to providing exceptional online education in a dynamic and flexible learning environment,” Kapanjie said. “The reputation of our online programs is on the rise, and we couldn’t be more proud.”
