The Executive MBA program at Temple University’s Fox School of Business is considered one of the best in the United States, according to Financial Times.
The Fox Executive MBA earned a No. 18 national ranking by Financial Times, which announced its 2016 rankings of the world’s top executive MBA programs on Oct. 17. The London-based business and economic news outlet has ranked the Fox Executive MBA among the nation’s top-20 programs six times since 2010.
“Our inclusion as one of the nation’s top Executive MBA programs over an extended period of time is illustrative of our program’s consistency and strength,” said Fox School Dean M. Moshe Porat. “This ranking speaks to the quality of our students and alumni, and our sterling reputation as a leader in business education.”
Financial Times’ rankings surveyed the Executive MBA Class of 2013 on salary growth, career progress, work experience, and aims achieved since graduation. School diversity, measured by international and female students, among other factors, comprises 25 percent of the weight. Idea generation, or the percentage of faculty with doctorates and research published in a list of 45 select academic journals, corresponds to 20 percent of the ranking.
Fox’s Executive MBA program, which can be completed in only 16 months, is built on face-to-face classroom time delivered one weekend per month and supplemented by interaction with classmates and faculty via WebEx, the premier web-conferencing platform. Online collaboration reduces travel and minimizes the time students, who average 12 to 14 years of industry experience, will spend away from home and office.
Courses for the program are held at The HUB, a vibrant business center located in Center City Philadelphia. The HUB features comprehensive communication services and state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment.
“The Fox Executive MBA was designed to fit the needs of mid-level professionals looking to become senior or c-level executives,” said Dr. Michael Rivera, Academic Director of Fox’s Executive MBA.“ With our mantra, ‘Learn over the weekend, apply on Monday,’ students almost immediately notice a powerful impact on their careers.”
