Temple's successful Small Business Development Center was one of the factors that led M. Moshe Porat to make entrepreneurship an emphasis of the Fox School of Business when he became its dean 16 years ago. Last week, Temple's undergraduate entrepreneurship programs were ranked No. 11; its graduate programs — No. 20. Rajan Chandran, vice dean and professor of marketing and supply chain management, said the Fox MBA program gives entrepreneurs the knowledge they need to succeed. "Every discipline has entrepreneurs, but often times they fail because they don’t know the process [of starting and running a business]," he said. "What the business school does is to give you the process part of it."
