The Fox School of Business full-time Global MBA program ascended 10 places, to No. 48 nationally, in the latest rankings by U.S. News & World Report.
The designation is part of U.S. News’ 2015 Best Graduate Schools rankings, released March 11. Among full-time MBA programs nationwide, the Fox School, at No. 48, and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School are the only business schools in Philadelphia to be ranked. In addition, the Fox School jumped from No. 23 to No. 15 nationally among the top business schools for internationally focused MBA programs.
Fox’s Part-time Professional MBA also ranked among the best in the U.S., at No. 53 out of the 310 part-time programs nationwide.
“The Fox School’s continued ascent in national and international rankings is affirmation by the marketplace of our high-quality programs, but we will not rest on our laurels,” Dean M. Moshe Porat said. “As always, we want to keep Fox on the forefront of management training and are accomplishing this by focusing on competency-based education that emphasizes crossing boundaries – in terms of disciplines, cultures and much more.”
This fall, the Fox School is launching a redesigned curriculum for its Global MBA, a two-year program that combines experiential learning, paid internships, and deep immersion in the global business environment. Fox MBAs travel to, and participate in, emerging hotspots of social, economic, technological, and organizational innovation and entrepreneurship. The program features two required international experiences.
In addition to international immersions in emerging economies, students provide professional-grade strategic solutions to paying clients through the capstone Fox Management Consulting (Fox-MC) Practice and have the option of pursuing a dual degree in a specialized masters program.
All Fox students have access to the school’s renowned Center for Student Professional Development (CSPD), a comprehensive resource focused on preparing students for entry into the professional business environment. CSPD oversees internship and job placement for both undergraduate and graduate students at the Fox School. In the past three years, placement rates for full-time Fox MBAs have been between 93 percent and 98 percent, and internship placement has remained at 100 percent.
