As we get ready to move to semesters, I thought it would be helpful to show you what you can expect from a curriculum standpoint. During the first year of the MBA program, you will focus on gaining expertise in your core business courses. Beginning in spring semester, you can enroll in a couple of elective courses to whet your appetite in a new subject matter or expand upon material that was introduced in your core coursework. Next week I will profile year 2 and give you an idea of the courses offered for a specialization in Finance. Stay tuned!

For all of you slow pokes out there who need an incentive to finish up your application and hit the “submit” button, here it is:
Anyone who applies to the Fisher Full-Time MBA program between now and March 1st (our next deadline) will receive a $500 scholarship for books and/or case materials, provided that you are offered admission and enroll at Fisher in the fall.
Need another incentive? If you apply quickly enough, you may still have enough time to earn your ticket to our Red Carpet Admitted Students Weekend. What does that mean? Well, Red Carpet is our Admitted Students Weekend, so an invitation to Red Carpet follows an acceptance into the Full-Time MBA program for Fall 2012. Red Carpet will be held the weekend of March 30-31. More on Red Carpet to come, but first, get in that application!!
Even though Fisher MBA students will be resting, traveling, visiting with family and friends, etc., the Fisher Graduate Programs Office (“GPO”) will be open during most of the month of December. If you need to contact us during December, please note the following:
- In addition to weekends, all campus offices at Ohio State will be closed on December 26, 27, and January 2.
- Staffing in the Fisher GPO during the month of December is thinner than in most other months since GPO staff are also likely to take extra vacation days during December for the various end of year holidays (e.g. Christmas, etc.).
- If you need to reach us, you can call 614-292-8511. Normal hours are 8:00AM-5:00PM, Monday through Friday. You can also reach us at email via MBA@fisher.osu.edu
My colleague, Julee, and I will be traveling to India on November 30 to conduct interviews with prospective Fisher candidates. First priority will go to those candidates who have already submitted applications to the Full-Time MBA program; however, if time permits we will accommodate appointments with prospective students who intend to apply by the December 15 deadline.
Our schedule is as follows:
Delhi – December 2 – 3
Mumbai – December 5 – 7
Bangalore – December 8 – 9
If you are interested in setting up a time to meet with us, please email Megha or Prashant at firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your resume. We look forward to meeting you soon!
This weekend marked another graduation for Ohio State and the Fisher College of Business! It is hard to believe that two years have gone by since we admitted these students into the Fisher MBA program. Soon enough, one of these faces could be YOU!
Last week, the Fisher Indian Students Association (“FISA”) hosted UTSAV. What is UTSAV? In FISA’s own words:
UTSAV, the flagship event of the FISA, is a celebration of everything Indian: Bollywood, Bharatnatyam, Bindis and Biryani! One of the most awaited events in Spring quarter at Fisher, UTSAV showcases the talents of our very own Fisher students, be it dancing on bollywood medleys or sashaying down in beautiful Indian clothes. A fun event for both participants and the audience, finished up with sumptuous Indian food!
Luckily the weather held up. We’ve had a much rainier than normal spring in central Ohio and many people worried that it might get rained out. Luckily, everything worked out. The fashion show (see photo above), the Bollywood dance routines (see below), musical interludes, etc., all went without a hitch. Great time to be had by all! If you’re anywhere near Fisher’s campus in mid May, you need to check out UTSAV. Definitely one of the premier events on campus! You can see additional photos from UTSAV 2011 here.

All Fisher graduate students are on their well-deserved spring breaks this week. Everyone will be back on campus by next Monday (March 28). Why is this of concern to anyone who might be reading this blog post? If you have contacted the Fisher MBA Admissions Office via its email account (email@example.com), it is likely you have interacted with our MBA student ambassadors. When students are not on campus, it decreases our staffing that handles these general inquiries by at least 80%.
The firstname.lastname@example.org email account will be monitored during spring break – but it will likely not be checked as often as it normally is since the number of people to assist with the account is significantly reduced during spring break. We will be back to “normal” staffing levels next week. Until then, we thank you for your patience!
P.S. If you have anything that is urgent, you can always contact the Fisher Graduate Programs Office directly at +1-614-292-8511

Governor John Kasich visited one of Fisher’s entrepreneurship classes to announce Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist Mark Kvamme’s appointment to the Ohio Department of Development. Watch the reaction from Fisher students and faculty here:
But for Ohio State, I would have never been able to go to college. I love Ohio State, and all the good it does. I hope this gift stimulates those who have received an education here, or been touched by this remarkable institution, to think about how they, too, can give back. Les Wexner, OSU Class of ’59
As you may have heard, Les Wexner, Chairman and CEO of the Limited Brands, just announced a donation of $100 million to The Ohio State University, the largest gift given in Ohio State’s history. Hear what President E. Gordon Gee and Les Wexner have to say about this “transformational moment.”
