Fox's Global MBA Leaps 20 Places in The Economist Global Ranking

The Global MBA program at Temple University’s Fox School of Business continues to climb in The Economist’s annual “Which MBA?” rankings.

The Fox School was ranked No. 33 nationally, a nine-spot improvement upon last year’s rankings. More impressively, the program leaped 20 positions to be ranked No. 57 among all programs around the globe.

The Fox School’s 20-spot improvement in the global rankings marks the biggest jump of any full-time MBA program featured in both the 2013 and 2014 reports. Additionally, Fox and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School were the only full-time MBA programs from the Greater Philadelphia region to be included in The Economist’s prestigious rankings.

“These rankings by The Economist serve as further affirmation of the quality of a Fox MBA as one of the best value propositions in graduate business education,” said Dean M. Moshe Porat. “Our flagship MBA program further empowers students to experience the world while advancing their careers through experiential learning, and entrepreneurship.”

Released Oct. 9, the rankings recognize the top-100, full-time MBA programs worldwide, according to three years of data (2012-2014) drawn from questionnaires of business schools, students and recent graduates in areas such as quality of faculty and career services, student diversity, breadth of alumni network, and salary increase following graduation.

Fox’s Global MBA is one of four distinct MBA programs offered by the School. (The others are the Online MBA, Executive MBA and Part-Time MBA.) It features five components: a curriculum designed to develop competencies identified by employers; two global immersion experiences, one in each year of the program, that focus on emerging markets; experiential-learning opportunities for real clients within the Fox Management Consulting (Fox MC) practice and a structured internship; dual-degree options with the School’s array of specialized master’s programs; and an individualized professional-development plan.
