100th Anniversary & FOX FAMILY LEGACIES

May 13, 2016 //

Dear members of the Fox School Family:

These words are at the heart of what we do and are as much a part of our rich legacy as our promising future.

In 2018, the Fox School of Business will celebrate our Centennial — 100 years of business education!

From our roots in 1918 as Temple University’s School of Commerce to today, as one of the nation’s largest and most-comprehensive business schools, the Fox School of Business has remained true to the vision of Temple’s founder, Dr. Russell Conwell.

For nearly 100 years, our stellar faculty has produced influential research and innovative teaching, and our diverse and exceptional students have earned an elite business leadership education. Our graduates have excelled as executives at every level, whether in C-Suites of Fortune 500 companies or as successful entrepreneurs in unique and cutting-edge ventures, further demonstrating our legacy of excellence.

And, the Fox School has maintained a reputation of outperformance.

U.S. News & World Report rated our Online MBA as No. 1 in the nation. U.S. News and The Economist regard our Part-Time and Executive MBAs, respectively, as the best in Philadelphia. And several of our undergraduate programs are ranked among the top-15 in the U.S., according to U.S. News and The Princeton Review. Our faculty’s scholarship output is highly ranked among the top business schools in the nation.

In the months ahead, we will unveil a schedule of events to recognize our storied history, our distinguished alumni and remarkable student body.

We welcome your participation in these celebrations. Along the way, we will also ask you to share personal stories and submit memorabilia to be featured in exhibits and displays.

We look forward to celebrating this distinguished legacy — and our 100th anniversary — with you!

Regards,

Moshe Porat
