  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 (Thursday/Friday/Saturday) 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 2011, 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."

    "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."

    "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."

    "I partner with clients in our Automotive & Industrial sector to develop and implement transportation solutions utilizing Exel's expertise and resource base. Rather than giving all of the answers, the Fisher EMBA program has provided me with the skills necessary to ask the right questions, an asset that will be valued by my company and colleagues, and will be beneficial in my future career. The EMBA experience is both a demanding and rewarding experience. I entered the program not just to enhance my professional credentials, but also for the personal challenge and academic learning opportunity. While the challenge of balancing a full class load and career is unavoidable, the business and life skills learned, along with the relationships developed in sixteen months, made the entire experience very meaningful. The Fisher EMBA offers curriculum and teaching focused on business strategy, which was essential in my school search. The once-a-month format made traveling from our home in Chicago simple with a quick trip from Midway to Columbus, and provided an opportunity for a three-day immersion into school without the distractions of everyday life."
