Message from the Dean

I am honored and thrilled to join Fisher College of Business and The Ohio State University. I am delighted to add my voice to all those who have made an indelible mark on the college and on our students -- for it is their dedication and commitment that has made Fisher an international leader in business education.

As I have become familiar with what is undeniably one of the finest business school campuses in the nation, I am reminded of the remarkable legacy left by our benefactor, Max M. Fisher. Something he once said particularly resonates for me – “the buildings are just enabling devices…it’s what goes on inside that makes the difference.”

This year’s annual report celebrates Fisher’s innovative spirit in a fast-paced, challenging business environment, told in the voices of our students, faculty, alumni, donors and business partners. We highlight the voices of change inside and outside the college who are making Fisher’s vision a reality.

I am excited to be a part of that vision and look forward to reporting our progress in the months and years to come.
