For the second consecutive year, Ohio State’s Net Impact chapter, launched at Fisher, was awarded the “Small Graduate Chapter of the Year Award” at the national conference held Oct. 28-30 at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
“Though a young chapter, Ohio State University has made their presence known both on campus and in their community,” the national organization’s leadership noted in giving the award. “The chapter hosted high-impact events like a Sustainability Boot Camp and a Green Supply Chain Symposium and helped establish the first undergraduate energy and sustainability industry cluster at their college.”
“This is a great recognition for the OSU Chapter, which has continued to grow at an amazing pace over the last few years,” said Ryan Mulcrone, graduate president of Ohio State’s Net Impact. “It is largely through our partnerships that we have sustained our growth and presence in the Columbus community.

Specialized Master in Finance program to begin Fall 2011
Information sessions have begun for Fisher’s new specialized master in finance (SMF) program, which will be offered beginning in the fall of 2011. George Pinteris (pictured right), was appointed academic director of the new program.
Fisher’s SMF is a rigorous nine-month intensive program that provides in-depth training in financial analytical techniques and that teaches both the theory and practice of today’s finance. The degree is suited for students interested in pursuing a variety of careers in global financial markets.
With the SMF program, Fisher is tapping into graduate students who want to build specialized expertise but don’t need a broad-based MBA to achieve their career goals. The program also can serve recent college graduates or younger professionals. Read More
