Fox School of Business
M. Moshe Porat, Ph.D., Dean
The Richard J. Fox School of Business and Management's (SBM) vision is to be recognized as a leading urban center of value-added business and management education. We are the primary provider of affordable business and management education in the region, and we have a special role in shaping our educational programs to fulfill the vision of Temple's founder, Dr. Russell Conwell.
Our goal is to improve business practice in the region by providing a results-oriented education that links theory with practice. SBM graduates not only will understand the core areas of business, but also will be able to respond to organizational problems and opportunities from a total enterprise perspective. This linkage will occur by actively involving all of our stakeholders in a continual review of the curriculum.
The competencies of the faculty play a critical role in achieving the mission. We, as a faculty, are committed to the advancement of scholarship and excellence in teaching that draws on the unique resources of our stakeholders. The School is actively involved in student professional development and contributes to the growth and development of our local community.
The graduate programs of SBM are fully accredited by the International Association for Management Education (AACSB).

Doctoral student awards provide for a stipend of at least $10,300, a $500 summer research fellowship, a $600 book allowance for an academic year, and tuition remission. Other fellowships and grants for particular areas of concentration are also available, and applicants may apply for university level scholarships.
