Associate Director of Student Diversity and Development – Towson University
The Fox School of Business’ Marketing and Supply Chain Management program truly helped me to become a thriving leader. The program provided me with powerful experiences, incredible responsibility, and enthusiastic faculty support. My courses focused on contemporary and real world issues, and I felt challenged and supported throughout my academic experience. I had the opportunity to serve as a leader for the student chapter of the American Marketing Association. I was able to develop skills around synthesizing complex information, creating dynamic presentations and learning how to lead in ever-changing environments. From the course content, the co-curricular activities and the passionate faculty it was a great experience. The MSCM program really taught me how to pivot in an ever changing world, a skill I have continued to find valuable as I move through my career.
Aramark – Associate Procurement Specialist, Strategic Sourcing, Healthcare Technologies
As an alumnus of the Fox School of Business, one of the most rewarding feelings I have is being able to apply the knowledge I’ve gained in my education to my current job responsibilities. Reflecting on the accumulated strategies, concepts, and wisdom from various professors and colleagues, I believe Fox has prepared me for how to successfully adapt and acclimate to the professional work environment. The concepts and strategies that I learned at Fox are the most valuable assets I bring to my current role, allowing me to differentiate myself as a professional. I am also grateful for Fox’s contribution to my ability to write well; it has been a differentiating factor for me and has attributed to my internal career growth. Fox’s Business Communications Center absolutely provides the right resources and tools to ensure its students have a solid foundation for articulate communication.
Director, Business Development – Liquid Interactive
My time in the MSCM program at Fox proved to be invaluable. Not only did I gain a deep understanding of strategic marketing concepts but, through the integrated power of the Fox School of Business, I also left with a thorough understanding of other key areas of business such as HR, risk and insurance, finance and operations.
One of the key reasons I decided to attend Temple and Fox was all of the opportunities for growth outside of the classroom. All of my professors were extremely helpful in coaching me through important career related decisions and guiding my professional growth. The TU-AMA provided extremely valuable networking opportunities and real-world insight. CSPD trained me on the soft-skills needed to succeed. I was even able to become a peer advisor to coach and mentor students in ‘Intro to Marketing’ courses.
Because of my time at Fox and in the MSCM program, I have been able to advance in my career much faster than I would have otherwise.
District Manager of Major Accounts – ADP
Seven years later, I couldn’t be more proud and satisfied with my decision to major in Marketing at Temple University’s Fox School of Business. Post-graduation, I’ve learned one of the most important attributes to having career success is being multi-faceted. Fox not only gave me a holistic education in business, but MSCM’s diverse curriculum allowed me to choose classes where I was able to be hands-on. The fact that all of my MSCM professors had impressive backgrounds in respected companies allowed me to realistically envision how each lesson applies to the real world. This is what sets MSCM apart and continues to help me stand out.

Guntram Werther has 25 years of Fortune 10 to Fortune 500 work at mid- to senior management levels, and his academic work has been evaluated as best-in-field, or best-in-world, four times.
In 2012/2014 Dr. Werther worked at top-of-field levels in five separate business disciplines. At top-of-government levels, the Program Manager of the Office of The Director of National Intelligence Proteus Futures Program wrote in 2012: “I believe that he is the leading practitioner of holistically forecasting future trends” (Auger 2012) and, in 2009, when this research was honored at the ODNI Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence, the Proteus’ Executive Director termed it “unequaled” (Wimbish III, 2009). The Society of Actuaries’ Extreme Risk Recognition Project Oversight Group Director and Munich RE Vice President stated in 2013, “His skills as a collaborator and insightful thinker would enhance even the strongest academic institution or research team.” Examples of recent highest-level activities include being invited speaker (2014) at Harvard Law School, plenary speaker (2013) at the quadrennial meeting of over 1,000 members of the International Congress of Actuaries, co-directing a project on societal resilience with Dr. Reuven Gal (National Security Council – Israel), being interviewed (2013) on industry best practice together with the Director of PricewaterhouseCoopers and Vice President of Munich RE, and plenary or keynote speaker at numerous events.
Since 1992, Dr. Werther’s Research has focused on: 1) holistically explaining emerging regional and global change dynamics, 2) holistically forecasting emerging futures, 3) developing better rare event foresight and risk assessments within regional and global markets, and 4) explaining the implications for strategy and the management of international operations (efficiency/comparative advantage) of emerging conflict (insurgency) styles.
