It is the largest business school in the Philadelphia region and one of the largest in the world. The current dean of the school is Dr. M. Moshe Porat.

Established in 1918, it was named in honor of Richard J. Fox in 1999. The MBA program began in 1942. The school was accredited by the International Association for Management Education (now the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)) in 1973. The Ph.D in Economics program was established in 1976.

Ciber Global, now a part of HTC Global Services is a global information technology consulting, services and outsourcing company with commercial clients.

The company was founded in Detroit, Michigan in 1974 by Bobby Stevenson and two additional partners. They called the company Consultants in Business Engineering Research (Ciber). In May 2017, HTC Global Services acquired Ciber.

The second event, too, was held at Fox Business School at Temple University with small and medium businesses of USA arranged by USCS (United States Commercial Services). Mentor on Road presented on the strategies to enter the Indian market and spoke about the notable business opportunities of New India 3.0. 

It was highly appreciated by the companies present in the event. We would soon start working with them and connect them to India.

Mentor on Road then headed to its last event of the day which was with the Indian diaspora of Philadelphia where we presented about the smart village program and talked about how the participants can support their village and help the villagers overcome their pain points. 

Mentor on Road was glad to note the enthusiasm and willingness shown by the participants who came forward to adopt and support their village. 

Mentor on Road feels extremely grateful to Philadelphia for the wonderful opportunity it bought to us. 

Hope the journey stays as constructive as it has been till now.

Jai Ho! (Let victory be yours)
