Fisher supports pre-collegiate recruitment programs such as The Accounting Careers Awareness Program and Young Scholars Program, which bring high school students to Fisher’s campus where they learn about business careers.
Accounting Careers Awareness Program
The Accounting Careers Awareness Program (ACAP-Ohio) is an innovative career development program designed specifically for minority high school students. During the week-long campus residency program, a select group of students will have the opportunity to explore careers in accounting and business.
ACAP-Ohio introduces minority high school students to accounting, finance, economics, technology and management. Minority business leaders share their experiences, provide tips for success and discuss educational opportunities. Students will learn about accounting careers first-hand through tours of local CPA firms and companies. The program wraps up with an all-star awards banquet for students, parents, speakers and corporate sponsors.
The Ohio State University Office of Diversity and Student Inclusion Young Scholars Program is a comprehensive pre-collegiate and collegiate program designed to enhance the academic, personal and career development of its Scholars.
Each summer, young scholars who are rising seniors and are interested in business careers come to Fisher for Career Exploration activities. These activities include:
