Pre-Term Program

A short, required pre-term program precedes our formal MBA curriculum. Fisher Pre-Term is designed to prepare you to “hit the ground running” once the semester starts.  During this time, you will learn what it takes to be a successful MBA student and begin work in some areas of the curriculum. You will also meet one-on-one with your Career Counselor to begin preparing for your internship and job search.

At Pre-Term, you will begin to explore your personal and professional development goals through exposure to a multitude of preparatory activities and experiences. You will start classes with a sense of preparedness and camaraderie and have the confidence in your ability to excel during the program and in your career.

Attendance and participation is required for all MBA students.
