The Fox School of Business Executive MBA program is ranked in the Top 20 in the U.S. for the sixth consecutive year, according to new rankings by the Financial Times. Among Greater Philadelphia business schools, Fox’s Executive MBA ranking is second only to the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
The 2013 rankings, released Oct. 21, surveyed the Executive MBA Class of 2010 on their salary growth, career progress, work experience and aims achieved since graduation. School diversity, measured by international and female students, among other factors, makes up 25 percent of the weight, while “idea generation” – percentage of faculty with doctorates and research published in a select list of 45 academic journals – corresponds to 20 percent of the ranking.
“The Fox Executive MBA has a strong history of sustained excellence, and we are proud to once again be ranked among the nation’s premier programs,” Dean M. Moshe Porat said. “Our continued success can be attributed to elite faculty, a strong global network and a convenient program format that offers an immediate return on investment.”
Fox’s Executive MBA, which can be completed in 16 months, is built on face-to-face classroom time delivered over one weekend per month and supplemented by interaction with classmates and faculty via the premier web-conferencing program WebEx. The online collaboration reduces travel and minimizes the time students spend away from home and office. Classes meet at one of the region’s finest conference facilities, the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Malvern, Pa., and the Fox Executive MBA is connected to a strong network of partner programs across the world.
The Fox School delivers its Executive MBA at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Cali, Colombia; the ENPC School of International Management (ENPC) in Paris, France; and the International Executive Education Center (IEEC) in Singapore, allowing students within the network of partner programs to study at any of the other three locations without slowing progress toward graduation.
In addition, the Fox School offers a Corporate Partner Scholarship Program for students when more than one employee from the same company attends the Fox Executive MBA program in a given year. For more information, visit www.fox.temple.edu/emba.
