Fox MBA at Temple University Ranked Top Globally for 4th Consecutive Year by Financial Times


The MBA program of Temple University’s Fox School of Business has been ranked among the Top 100 MBA Programs globally and its graduates among the most internationally mobile and experienced in the nation for the fourth consecutive year by Financial Times in its 2008 rankings, released today.

The Fox School and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania were the only Philadelphia-area MBA programs that made the Financial Times listing of Top 100 MBA Programs in the world.

The Fox MBA ranked top in the nation (No. 2) and the world (No. 19) for the “International Mobility” of its graduates and top in the nation (No. 2) and the world (No. 14) for the “International Experience” the School provides to its graduates.

“Our mission is to prepare our students for the challenges they face in today’s global economy,” said M. Moshe Porat, dean of the Fox School of Business. “So, to be recognized for how well we prepare our graduates to meet these challenges is a testament to our outstanding faculty, staff and global partners.”

In addition to top international rankings, for the second consecutive year, Fox has been ranked in the top 10 (No. 5) for “Value for Money” among U.S. universities and No. 2 in the United States for the percentage of female students enrolling in the MBA program.

The Financial Times rankings were determined from a survey filled out by graduates of the Fox School full-time MBA programs — the two-year Fox MBA and the one-year Fox International MBA — as well as data provided by the school. The Fox MBA is a cohort program emphasizing leadership, globalization and real-world learning while the Fox International MBA is an accelerated, global program where students study in three continents over a period of one year.

“In our MBA programs, students work on multinational teams to tackle real projects with top international companies from the U.S., Japan, India, Ireland, China, Israel, Russia and France,” said Robert F. Bonner, assistant dean of the Fox School MBA programs. “This global learning environment is what prepares our students for success when they graduate.”

In addition to the Fox School’s two full-time MBA programs, the school has two MBA programs for working professionals: the Fox Executive MBA (EMBA) and the Fox Professional MBA (PMBA). The Fox EMBA has been ranked among the Top Executive Programs in the World for the past seven consecutive years by Financial Times.

The Fox School of Business is the largest, most comprehensive business school in the Greater Philadelphia region and among the largest in the world, with more than 6,000 students, 150 full-time faculty and 51,000 alumni. Accredited by AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), the Fox School’s MBA programs are ranked internationally and nationally by many leading business publications, including U.S.News & World Report, The Economist and The Princeton Review/Entrepreneur magazine. Recently, The Economist ranked the Fox MBA among the top programs globally and among the top 50 programs nationally. For more information, visit
