As the Academic Director of the Fox School’s EMBA program since 2000, Howard Weiss has a true insider’s view of the program and its students.
“Teaching in the EMBA program is a distinct privilege. The students are among the most dedicated and diligent at Temple, and the relationship between the faculty and students couldn’t be any warmer or more collegial.”

He has also co-authored two textbooks – Introduction to Mathematical Programming and Production and Operations Management.
