Fisher team takes first place in 2010 Biz Quiz

The Michigan versus Ohio rivalry played out three weeks early in the final round of 2010 Biz Quiz with Ohio State’s Fisher team finishing victorious over University of Michigan and Michigan State University on Sunday, Nov. 6.

Brenna Brown, Daniel Kane and Adam Windnagel gave Fisher its first win in the fifth-annual Nationwide-Fisher Biz Quiz. The team was coached by Bernadette Minton, associate professor of finance.

“The best part of winning for me was bringing a victory to Fisher that no other Fisher team had done before,” Brown said. “This was not only a way for me to contribute something to Fisher, but it was a way for me to gain knowledge on new and important business topics.” Read More >>

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. We look forward to continued success in the future." Read More >>

Specialized Master in Finance program to begin Fall 2011

george pinterisInformation 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 >>

Fisher plays a role in multidisciplinary theater production on mortgage crisis

Fisher students and faculty will lend their business expertise to a year-long Ohio State initiative led by the Wexner Center for the Arts to support the development of ROAD TRIP, a multimedia theater work centered on the impact of today’s mortgage crisis. The show will be produced by the Builders Association, a New York-based theater company.

In addition to Fisher, the research phase and creative process for ROAD TRIP (the working title for the production) will involve students and faculty from across Ohio State in both arts and non-arts disciplines, including Department of Theatre, the Knowlton School of Architecture, History, Comparative Studies, and the Living Culture Initiative in the Department of Art. The play will premiere at Ohio State in October 2011 and subsequently tour internationally. Read More >>
