David A. Schilling and students
Fisher's new General Business Major offered at Ohio State’s four regional campuses in Lima, Mansfield, Marion and Newark expands the college’s reach and service as a statewide resource. The undergraduate degree offers students access to Fisher faculty and expertise while receiving their education in their communities. According to David A. Schilling (left), management sciences professor and program director, the approach of “one university with many locations” is hitting home with students. Michelle Wollett, a mom, full time business professional, and Marion campus student, agrees. “The variety of the courses and the flexible class hours, combined with distance-learning technologies, enabled me to pursue my degree without drastically changing my lifestyle. With my Fisher BSBA degree I’ll have more opportunities to advance within my company and market myself to the business community.”

    Thanks to a Ford Motor Company gift, a Fisher business minor is available to all Ohio State students, providing a foundation in management fundamentals for non-business majors. Students benefit from a series of five courses that include accounting, finance, marketing, management and human resources, and operations.

    Fisher’s distance-based General Business Major offered at Ohio State’s four regional campuses in Lima, Mansfield, Marion and Newark extends the availability of Fisher’s undergraduate degree to students statewide.

    Thirty students in the Mitte Honors Business Administration Cohort Program gained first-hand experience from marketing industry giants Leo Burnett and Philip Morris while visiting the two firms’ Chicago offices last spring.

    Eighteen Mitte honors students in Fisher’s undergraduate Emerging Markets Field Studies class visited Mexico during autumn quarter. The 10-day trip to Mexico City and Puebla brought new understanding to the strategic advantages offered through the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

    Fisher undergraduate students established the first collegiate chapter of the American Business Woman’s Association (ABWA), a forum for women’s business and community issues.

    The second annual Mitte Honors Business Administration Contract Program retreat provided 25 new undergraduate students the opportunity to meet through team-building activities. This unique program enables honors students to design their own curriculum, which includes business studies and a non-business minor.

    Twenty-four Fisher students studied at AUDENCIA, the Nantes School of Management in France, while 64 students from Nantes participated in business classes at Fisher during spring quarter this year. Over 80 Fisher and Ohio State students served as spring quarter hosts for the visiting students.

    The Fisher Hispanic Business Student Association (HBSA) teamed up with Big Brothers/Big Sisters to coordinate volunteer tutors for high school students who moved to the Columbus area from Mexico, Ukraine, Russia and Somalia.
