The Part-Time MBA program at Temple University’s Fox School of Business announced today that it is expanding into the Philadelphia suburbs by offering a program in West Conshohocken. Enrollment opens this week.
The new West Conshohocken-based program will allow for a two-year completion structure of the Fox Part-Time MBA, which is ranked No. 1 locally and No. 7 nationally by U.S. News & World Report. The Fox Part-Time MBA at West Conshohocken also will incorporate the curriculum-delivery model of the Fox Online MBA program, which U.S. News has ranked No. 1 nationally for three consecutive years.
“Our Part-Time MBA has always catered to the working professional. And for some, it can be daunting to simultaneously commute into the city to pursue a graduate degree and to manage professional, personal, and family obligations,” said Dr. Moshe Porat, Dean of the Fox School. “This new cohort option in Conshohocken will provide students with another pathway toward attaining a Fox MBA—a pathway that will balance both the coveted in-person interaction and the online accessibility component of our top-ranked programs.”
Students enrolled in the Fox Part-Time MBA in West Conshohocken will complete their first-year of coursework in person. Electives or concentration-specific coursework will be completed in the program’s second year through the same digital platform offered in the Fox Online MBA program. Students will reconvene in person to complete their capstone—the renowned Fox Management Consulting Practice, through which all Fox MBA students provide professional-grade strategic business solutions to paying clients.
“At Fox, we pride ourselves on coupling an affordable, top-ranked education with accessibility and convenience,” said Tom Kegelman, Fox’s Assistant Dean of Marketing and Graduate Enrollment. “Our Part-Time MBA students at Conshohocken will benefit from receiving the face-to-face MBA experience that they crave with the flexibility of completing some coursework online.”
Please note that Temple refers to this location as Conshohocken, when its really in West Conshohocken, throughout the announcement. The only place we didn’t correct it was within the quotes. THWND
