Building the Next Generation of Business Leaders

ProjectAreasFox Board Fellows (FBF) is building the next generation of business leaders who are dedicated to strengthening the Philadelphia community. This initiative places Fox MBA students on the boards of directors of Philadelphia area nonprofit organizations as non-voting members for an academic year.

Board Fellows are selected through a rigorous application process, and then matched with a partner nonprofit whose needs and mission aligns with the Fellow’s skills and interests. The nonprofit then assigns the Fellow to a standing board committee or working group and appoints a mentor. By providing graduate students with firsthand experience on a board, FBF produces strong, socially responsible leaders while making a positive impact on the Philadelphia community. The FBF works on various project areas such as:

  • Board Development
  • Research/Planning
  • Marketing
  • Financial Analysis
  • Outcomes & Measurement Design
