  4. Why Fisher?

    Our Format Fits Your Busy Work Schedule

    The Fisher EMBA program is structured to provide minimal disruption to your busy work schedule and personal life. On-campus sessions meet three consecutive days a month over a 17-month period, December through April of the second year.

    A Comprehensive Curriculum

    At Fisher, we know the world of business is complex and often unpredictable — that today's business challenges are multidimensional and do not come neatly packaged and labeled "marketing" or "finance." That's why we've developed a comprehensive, integrative program that examines today's issues from every angle to give you a total business perspective.

    The Fisher EMBA curriculum is presented in learning modules consisting of a solid foundation of business management core courses and electives that incorporate business fundamentals with current issues relevant to today's business managers.

    Dynamic, Accessible Faculty Who Are Experts in Their Field

    At Fisher, we select our faculty based on their ability to conduct high-impact research and teach both creatively and effectively. That means selecting faculty who are passionate about their areas of expertise and share their knowledge in fresh and innovative ways. Their ability to translate management principles and current business issues in the classroom provides a stimulating learning environment for the students.

    Orientation

    The Fisher EMBA program orientation begins with a simulation exercise that lets you test your knowledge of comprehensive business functions and decision-making skills while working in teams. Orientation is a four-day, on-campus residency required of all in-coming students. The orientation features non-credit core concept reviews in basic analytical skills.

    Core Courses

    Core courses present the fundamentals of business to help you develop the managerial thinking skills you will need to become a source of competitive advantage for your firm.

    International Business Trip

    A required international experience – offered only to program participants – provides an excellent opportunity for you to understand the challenges faced by business managers operating overseas. The cost of the trip is not included in your program fee.

    Elective Courses

    Elective courses are selected from current MBA course offerings and from special courses created for the EMBA program. While the entire cohort takes the same set of courses, the selection process does involve input and voting from the students.

    Thursday Speaker Series

    Senior executives leading some of the nation's most successful organizations are invited to speak to your class about their companies and contemporary business issues. You will learn how their leadership styles and philosophies have helped shape their businesses and address any company challenges.

    • A Global Perspective

      Successful decision making often depends on how well you understand the current global business environment. Fisher's EMBA international business course focuses specifically on the global dimension of today's management problems. In June 2013, the EMBAs traveled to Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong as part of their international business course. In addition to the program site visits, students also are required to organize a team site visit with a company of their choice.

  5. Ton Hurkmans

    "The Fisher EMBA is like an intense excursion through many different industries and business disciplines. On the way you become a more well-rounded individual, both in business and on a personal level. Three days per month on campus gives plenty of face time with professors and classmates and works well with my extensive travel schedule. I feel very welcome being from The Netherlands and living in Michigan."

    "This program format is ideal for me. Given where I am in my career, it was not feasible to take time off to pursue an MBA. This program allows me to pursue my studies while still maintaining my personal and professional commitments. The EMBA experience has provided me a tremendous opportunity to grow.

The structure of the program combined with the excellent faculty and talent of the students creates a powerful learning experience. In addition, I'm traveling from Kansas, and the once-a-month format allows me to get away from work and submerse myself in the learning experience."

    "I lead the U.S. commercial organization, including full P&L responsibility, to plan and implement strategies to achieve short- and long-range objectives for Abbott's Pediatric Nutrition business. I chose the EMBA format over others for two reasons. First, I felt I would experience an enriched learning experience given the caliber and depth of business experience of my fellow classmates. And second, the program format allowed me to balance a heavy travel schedule while completing the program. The focus on strategy and quantitative analysis was very important to me. I also felt the program's attributes – academic reputation, faculty, program format and cost – fit my needs better than any of the other programs I evaluated."

As a Fisher EMBA student, you have the opportunity to develop a strategic career management plan to effectively manage your career progress. Through a career management group, you have access to a suite of online executive-level tools and services that include one-on-one coaching opportunities. It is the student's responsibility, however, to utilize career resources in accordance with policies of their employers, especially any policies that pertain to tuition reimbursement.

    "Fisher offered the perfect balance for my career, my family, and my developmental goals. It was the right culture. With my HR background, I looked to strike a balance between theory and application while building a toolkit of skills and competencies. I sought out a program that went beyond textbooks and pushed students to think constructively and creatively. From the beginning, the team was committed to ensuring my EMBA journey was smooth, effective, and rewarding. Becoming a Buckeye is the best investment I've ever made."

    "The primary reasons I chose Fisher's EMBA program were the rankings and the quality of the instructors. Commuting from Alabama, I realized early in my decision that I needed a program allowing easy travel and a weekend format. I have enjoyed the team approach to learning and have found it extremely beneficial to solving cases and presenting compelling arguments for our position. And while the learning has been intense and challenging, it has also been fun and stimulating. I never thought I would get to sing in a business strategy class! That was quite a surprise to me – and I am certain to my teammates as well."

    "Earning an EMBA at Fisher is an investment that will pay both personal and professional “dividends” the rest of your life. As the Academic Director and an Elective Faculty Member, it is a pleasure working with our EMBA students. Class discussions consistently center on real world business issues, with solutions derived from the professional experiences of our students and the expertise of our world class faculty. I’m proud of our job as faculty members when we hear students comment that they were able to use concepts learned in class the very next workday. The size of our program facilitates not only the sharing of professional experiences but the hopes and dreams of your fellow classmates. A common theme surrounding the program can be summed up in the words 'You don’t just enter an academic program here... you become part of a family.'"

    "As an entrepreneur and owner of two franchises, I was looking for an EMBA program that would challenge my existing business knowledge and impact my bottom lines. When considering my choices, it was clear that the Fisher EMBA program afforded an opportunity to learn from distinguished faculty and executives, develop sound business intelligence and network with top level professionals. All of which has allowed me to positively impact my organization and significantly increase my ROI."
