Students in the Working Professional program can create a specialized niche of study to complement their general MBA degree. In a business climate where employers demand both broad management skills and functional depth, specializations give Fisher MBAs a leg up on the competition. Fisher's specializations have been designed by faculty to facilitate the development of expertise in a business approach or area that cuts across functional disciplines.
Specializations are not required for graduation in the Working Professional program; however, they can provide students with a concentrated area of focus as they enhance their contributions to their current job and prepare for their future careers.
The Finance specialization helps students develop a sound mix of analytical and management skills related to finance, both of which greatly facilitate the decisions corporations and their leaders make on a daily basis.
