Philadelphia

There’s a reason Lonely Planet thinks Philadelphia is “Best in the U.S.”: it’s because the City of Brotherly Love is an epicenter of culture, history, and opportunity. Centrally located on the East Coast between New York City and Washington D.C., Philadelphia delivers the benefits of city life at an affordable cost of living, plus diverse industry representation from some of the largest and most noteworthy organizations in the country. With the Fox Global MBA, the first stop on your career path is Philadelphia–and it’s followed by wherever you want.
