Fox Online MBA ranks No. 11 in Poets & Quants ranking of best business schools

June 11, 2013 //

The Online MBA program at Temple University’s Fox School of Business ranks No. 11 nationally in business-school website Poets & Quants’ listing of the highest-ranked business schools in the U.S. with online MBA programs.

The website compiled its listing, released May 28, by taking its ranking of full-time MBA programs and filtering out the schools that don’t offer online MBAs. “We believe the best online MBA programs are simply at the best business schools,” wrote John A. Byrne, chairman and editor-in-chief at C-Change Media Inc., the digital media company with several websites including “The ultimate test for any degree is the reputation of the school that grants it.”

The Fox School’s Online MBA was ranked No. 28 this year by U.S. News & World Report, including high scores in peer reputation (No. 8) and student services and technology (No. 7). In 2012, the first year in which U.S. News evaluated online programs, Fox was one of 14 honor roll recipients among graduate business programs. This year, U.S. News replaced honor roll designations with overall rankings.

U.S. News also ranked the Fox Online MBA fourth nationally in its inaugural ranking of Best Online Graduate Business Programs for Veterans, released May 7.

“Our Online MBA features the same world-class faculty and curriculum as our traditional MBA, and we work to ensure that all our students – whether they’re in physical classrooms or at points across the world – have every opportunity to succeed,” Dean M. Moshe Porat said. “The continued national recognition for our online programs is a testament to the investment and expertise we have in this dynamic area of teaching and learning.”

In the Fox Online MBA program, students can earn their degree in as little as 20 months; engage in course activities in a 24/7, on-demand, mobile-friendly format; and collaborate with faculty and peers through WebEx web-conferencing technology.

The program begins with a weeklong residency on Main Campus that includes a leadership course, networking, team building, professional development and events. Each course is delivered over four weeks, and the program has multiple start dates.

Merit scholarships are available, as is a scholarship incentive program for Temple alumni and for corporate partners that have two or more employees enrolled in the program at one time. Financial aid counseling is offered to all students, and the Fox School and Temple support the Yellow Ribbon Program for military personnel and veterans.
