Uniquely positioned in the heart of Philadelphia, the second largest city on the East Coast, students at the Fox School have access to major multinational corporations and leading industries from financial services to pharmaceuticals. Known as “The City of Brotherly Love,” Philadelphia is a vast cultural center that serves as a gateway for students to experience the entrepreneurial spirit that drives the global economy.
Philadelphia is widely recognized for its dynamic blend of history, industry, arts and culture. It is here that students in the Full-Time MBA program at Temple University’s Fox School of Business spend two years developing the skills required to further their professional career.
Philadelphia is home to some of the world’s financial services giants including the Vanguard Group – the second largest mutual company in the world – and the “Big Four” accounting firms, each of which maintains major offices here. Philadelphia is also centrally located in the Northeast corridor of the U.S. and in close proximity to Washington, D.C. and New York City.
