The Fox School of Business was recently recognized as one of eight Business Schools on the Rise by U.S. News & World Report because of the school’s continued ascent in rankings.

The Fox School’s Full-time MBA climbed 11 spots in U.S. News’s newest graduate rankings, which also placed Fox’s Part-time Professional MBA as the highest-ranked in Greater Philadelphia and recognized the school’s graduate management information systems programs among the nation’s best.

“With the release of the 2013 Best Graduate School rankings, many programs see their academic stock change considerably,” U.S. News said in introducing a photo gallery of business schools that made some of the biggest jumps in rankings. Fox was third on the list.

Among full-time MBA programs nationwide, the Fox School, at No. 52, and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School are the only business schools in Greater Philadelphia ranked in the 2013 edition of Best Graduate Schools by U.S. News Media Group. U.S. News surveyed 441 graduate business programs overall.

Fox’s Part-time Professional MBA again ranked as the region’s top program, at No. 47 out of the 326 part-time programs nationwide.

In specialty rankings, Fox graduate programs offered by the Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) were ranked No. 22 in the country, based on a peer assessment of deans and directors of accredited master’s programs. This followed a September 2011 U.S. News ranking that placed Fox’s undergraduate MIS program at No. 18 in the nation.

“Our students expect curriculum innovation, premier faculty, experiential learning and more from one of the nation’s top public-urban business schools,” Dean M. Moshe Porat said. “These rankings recognize that we are delivering on our pledge to make a Fox degree more valuable than ever.”

Fox’s MIS Department offers multiple programs for graduate study, including an MBA concentration in Information Technology Management and a new Master of Science in Information Technology Auditing and Cyber-Security (ITACS). The ITACS program culminates in a capstone that prepares students for the Certified Information Systems Auditor exam, a credential with rapidly expanding career options for IT auditors.

In addition, the Master of Science in Health Informatics, jointly offered by the Fox School and Temple’s College of Health Professions and Social Work, is an applied graduate degree that focuses on the design, development and implementation of electronic health record systems.
