The Fox School of Business recognizes that several business professionals need the knowledge and skills that come with a respected MBA program, but cannot afford to put their professional careers on hold to enroll in a full-time program.  We also realize that many online programs are missing the collaborative community aspect found in traditional brick and mortar programs.  The Fox Online MBA program combines the vibrant community and rigorous curriculum of full-time program with the convenience and flexibility of online learning.

The Fox Online MBA program has multiple start dates throughout the year and the curriculum is aligned so that courses build upon each other, enhancing the students’ expertise in analyzing and solving business problems. Designed to cater to the busy schedule of working professionals, students in the Fox Online MBA program concentrate on one-course at a time and can complete their degree online in as little as 20-months.

Students begin the program with a week-long residency held at Temple University’s main campus.  During the residency experience students will complete their Leadership Development course and engage in networking, professional development, technology training and team building activities.  As students continue through the online portion of the program, relationships grow stronger as students work together in virtual teams to produce interdisciplinary industry-based business projects.

Each online course is compressed into a 4-week format in which all lecture style content is delivered through production-value HD videos that can be viewed whenever and wherever you choose.  Fox Online MBA students help shape a personal learning experience by engaging in asynchronous social-media discussions.  The online discussion forums allow faculty and students to participate in on-going dialogue focused on course content.  Weekly discussion topics are designed to tie the curriculum into students’ professional and personal experiences.  The result is a dynamic and interactive learning community where students and faculty learn from one another.

While all content in the online courses is available 24/7 in a mobile-friendly format, Fox Online MBA students have the opportunity to dive deeper into business topics by attending live weekly classes conveniently held through WebEx.  The weekly web conferencing sessions integrate discussion and project-based learning activities in which students break into small groups to solve authentic and challenging problems faced by today’s business leaders.

At the conclusion of the Fox Online MBA program students engage in an integrative capstone course.  The capstone is an opportunity for students to demonstrate that they have mastered, and can apply, the learning goals of the Fox MBA in a real-world setting.
