At the Fox School of Business, our nearly 100-year mission to excel has not wavered. When we invested early in online education, we veered off the traditional path. We identified this as a growing area, one in which we’d need to supply resources to meet the public demand, and we since have soared to great heights.

In January, the Fox Online MBA program earned a No. 1 national ranking and a perfect score from U.S. News & World Report for a second consecutive year. The only difference? In the same ranking, our Online BBA program climbed 25 places to reach No. 6 nationally, a best in the program’s history.

We aren’t only pushing boundaries through our curricula and award-winning faculty. Our alumni are doing the same.

In this edition of Fox Focus, you’ll meet Lori Bush. From an evening student at Fox to the recently retired CEO of one of the largest women’s-owned businesses, skincare manufacturer Rodan + Fields, Lori has certainly broken the mold.

From our alumni to our student body, entrepreneurial spirit within the Fox community has never been stronger. Lori’s career demanded professional reinvention at every turn. Innovation helped fellow alums Justin Rosenberg and Ofo Ezeugwu establish successful ventures, stemming from their days on campus. And our current students played a significant role in Fox’s Entrepreneurship programs achieving two top-10 rankings by The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine.

Here at Fox, we provide an education that will carry our students professionally — and encourage them to look outside the box.
