Temple EMBA Ranked in Top 25 Worldwide by Financial Times - Temple University, Japan Campus

November 6, 2003

The Financial Times ranks the Executive MBA (EMBA) program at Temple University's Fox School of Business and Management 14th best in the United States and among the top 25 EMBA programs in the world. The new rankings were announced in London on October 20, 2003.

To determine its rankings, the Financial Times rated how EMBA class of 2000 alumni—including, in Temple's case, alumni from the Tokyo campus—fared in career progression and salary. It also measured alumni's satisfaction with their EMBA programs and the overall strength of individual programs based on their level of faculty research and the global perspective of the program and its students.

The Temple EMBA program scored favorably in all respects. The publication, in fact, ranked it among the top 10 programs worldwide for its percentage of female and international students.

"Being ranked once again by a prestigious publication is a testament to the exceptional quality of our student body, faculty, and staff," says Philadelphia-based Dean M. Moshe Porat, of the Fox School of Business and Management. And William Swinton, the assistant dean of Management Education Programs at Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) and a 1998 TUJ MBA graduate, adds, "This is excellent news for our stakeholders, particularly our alumni and students in the U.S., Japan, and around the globe. The value of our degree continues to increase."

In September 2003, Forbes magazine included the Fox School's full-time MBA program in its top 75 "return on investment" ranking for the second consecutive year. U.S. News & World Report also ranks Fox's international MBA, in its top 25, and Fox's MBA in health care management among its top 35.

In addition to its strong MBA rankings, the Fox School in general receives top marks from U.S. News & World Report. It ranks the school's Risk Management and Insurance program 8th in the United States, its Undergraduate International Business programs 15th in the U.S., and its overall undergraduate business programs among the top 100 in the U.S.

TUJ will hold an EMBA program information session at its Minami-Azabu campus on November 22 at 11 a.m. Applications are now being accepted for classes starting spring 2004. For more information, please call 0120-86-1026, or contact us.
