Fox School’s Dean Porat Attends Elite Global Forum in China

Last month, Dr. M. Moshe Porat was in exclusive company.  The Dean of Temple University’s Fox School of Business, Porat attended the Global Deans’ Forum as an invited speaker.

The two-day event, held Oct. 24-25 at the HSBC Business School at Peking University, in Shenzhen, China, assembled 41 business school deans from colleges and universities located around the world. Porat was one of only six deans who represented American institutions.

The forum gathered deans and presidents of the world’s finest business schools, as well as members of various stakeholder groups and business community, thought, practice and entrepreneurial leaders, to engage in an open dialogue. Those in attendance shared insights from their respective corners of the globe, in the hope of advancing educational offerings through current trends and shifts in the business and management arenas.

In the forum’s first day, Porat participated in a global panel of deans titled, “Reflections on the Future,” during which Porat discussed the breadth of the services provided by Fox School’s Online and Digital Learning staff, and the challenges facing business education.

“It was an honor to represent the Fox School of Business and Temple University on a global stage at the Global Deans’ Forum,” Porat said. “At Fox, we emphasize the significance of our robust global network of more than 60,000 alumni, as well as our diverse student body that closely reflects the world in which we live. I was privileged to share with others my experiences as the dean of such a unique and vibrant business school.”

Additionally, the Global Deans’ Forum – themed, “Connecting China to the World, Bringing the World to China – The Role of Business Schools” – provided a platform for interactive dialogues and in-depth discussions, as well as panels featuring guest speakers of multi-disciplinary backgrounds.
