Fisher partners with GE Captial, hosts middle market summit

Published: 2011-11-25

During the 2011 National Middle Market Summit: Leading From the Middle, GE Capital announced a five-year, $10 million partnership with Fisher that includes the National Center for the Middle Market housed here on campus. The center is the first of its kind in the nation and will further explore the middle market economy, engage students in middle market opportunities, and provide training and networking opportunities to middle market executives.

The summit received more national media coverage and positive feedback than any other recent event at Fisher, in the community, and perhaps in the state.
