Temple makes headlines yet again for a good reason of course. The U.S News & World Report ranked Temple’s Fox School of Business’ online MBA program #1 in the nation. It’s definitely an impressive feat considering the program was ranked #9 last year.
The U.S News & World Report began their ranking system back in 2012 and evaluate about 230 schools annually. The highly touted publication considers many factors into their ranking system including student engagement, peer reputation, admission selectivity, student services and technology, as well as faculty credentials and training.
Temple however is not at the top alone. Achieving a perfect score along with the cherry & white are North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School and Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.
The Fox School of Business launched the online program back in 2009 and has been receiving praise and accolades ever since. Considering the busy lifestyles that many people live which includes balancing school with work, Fox School of Business developed an online program that not only fits student’s schedule but also integrates them into campus life. This helps students excel because so they don’t miss out on the “college feel.” According to Fox’s site
students benefit from a flexible curriculum carousel with multiple entry points. The Fox School’s Online MBA program launches with a weeklong residency at Temple University’s Main Campus in Philadelphia. The residency features a leadership course, networking, team building, professional development and special events. Each subsequent online course is delivered one at a time over four weeks, and the program can be completed in as quickly as 20 months.
This is obviously great news for those in Philly or anyone in the region that are considering an MBA program. Philadelphia has always been recognized for its bevy of great college programs and it looks like the academic world is continuing to flourish.
