Student Life

Temple MBAs speak quite highly of their peers. Indeed, “My fellow students are what I love most about Temple—they are cooperatively competitive. Students are there to help one another with class work, internship/job searches, networking, etc. This has been one of the most collaborative environments I’ve enjoyed thus far.” Moreover, many also describe their fellow students as “wonderful, interesting, intelligent people.” And a con­tent first-year further explains, “My fellow students are a diverse mix of both domestic and international students with a variety of professional backgrounds. We have a great sense of community and associate with the members of our cohort both inside and out­side of the classroom.”“With few exceptions,” Temple MBAs are “busy from 7:00 AM to midnight.” Of course, that’s completely understandable considering “there is always something to do here, and there is always somebody to do it with.” The school “consistently offers speakers and events that we can attend for free—these include C-Suite individuals, athletic coaches, various politicians, etc.” And when students are looking to unwind in a less academic manner, they can “always go out to bars and house-parties in Philadelphia.” All in all, “It is a work hard play hard environment and the learning experience is outstanding.”

Career

The Fox School of Business provides students with many avenues for job placement. For starters, Temple MBAs truly value that they can turn to their teachers for career advice and assistance. As a second-year student proudly shares, “With some exception, most pro­fessors have fantastic real-world experience and are happy to share themselves and their networks with any willing student.” Additionally, MBA candidates can take advantage of Temple’s “strong…web application[s] that help students find internships and jobs.” Though a demoralized second-year laments that “job postings are not always indicative of the industries students are looking to enter.” Fortunately, due to Temple’s growing stature, students have noticed “more prominent recruiters showing up at career fairs.” The vast majority of Temple MBAs seek employment within the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. Of course, the program does attract an international crowd and gradu­ates can be found around the globe from England and France to Nigeria and India. Employers who frequently hire Fox students include Accenture, Ernst & Young, Campbells Soup, Vanguard, GlaxoSmithKline, KPMG, G.E., Comcast, and Boenning and Scattergood.

The Princeton Review

Students Say

Temple University’s reputation has been growing exponentially in the business world. Naturally, this notion is certainly not lost on current students who praise the school’s “high-end new facilities, rising rankings, and strong brand equity.” Additionally, Temple’s Philadelphia location guarantees “proximity to major companies;” companies with whom the school has forged strong relationships. Students also benefit from “small class sizes” which “provide a one-on-one experience with the opportunity to collaborate with award-winning faculty.” However, opinion on academic rigor is definitely divided. While some students find the caliber to be “world class,” others think some classes “seem tailored more toward an undergrad population.”For the most part, professors “truly care about each individual student and keep classes fresh with ideas and topics that are timely in today’s business world.” Students also eager­ly report that they are great at fostering “meaningful discussion.” Just as essential, it’s apparent that Temple professors are “dedicated to teaching” and they really do their utmost to make themselves “accessible.”Moreover, the administration makes a concerted effort to “seek student input.” They fre­quently ask MBA candidates to “evaluate [their] classes, courses and overall experience.” And the school truly utilizes this feedback to ensure the program “constantly stays up on trends.” Indeed, “The Fox School is on the road to continuous improvement; the program is continually evolving to help meet student needs.”
