Entrepreneurship and New Business Ventures

Fisher MBAs leave our program as ambitious innovators, leading change in their communities with their well-rounded grasp of business and proven personal and professional skills. Some create their own ways of starting and managing a new business by taking smart risks and swimming in unchartered waters as entrepreneurs.

Others play leading roles in large corporations by accelerating change and innovation as corporate “intrapreneurs.” Entrepreneurs themselves, our distinguished Fisher faculty are dedicated to transforming outstanding individuals into initiators, helping to create the future through a combination of academic study and professional hands-on experience with successful entrepreneurs in the community.

S. Michael Camp
Entrepreneurship, Technology Commercialization

Inc. magazine has likened Michael Camp to "one of those reality-show hosts who crawl around in basements ferreting out neglected antiques," for his work with Fisher's Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization course. For the course, which was named one of 10 best entrepreneurship courses in the nation in 2011 by Inc., Camp, searches the labs at Ohio State and other organizations for technologies that have gone unnoticed commercially.

MBA students along with technical majors and law students are assigned the technologies Camp uncovers to find marketable applications. Many of these technologies lead to successful entries in the annual Ohio State Business Plan Competition hosted annually by Fisher's Center for Entrepreneurship.
