Semester Curriculum Year 1

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!

Join us for Fisher Debut!

On Saturday, February 25, we will be hosting an on-campus recruiting event for those of you that would like to learn more about Fisher or are currently in the process of submitting applications to the program.  This particular event is called Fisher Debut and will enable you to learn more about the Fisher MBA program in person, without having to give up a day of work.  Activities will take place in the morning and early afternoon and will include a MBA program overview, sample class, lunch with faculty, and tour with student ambassadors.  All prospective students that attend Fisher Debut will be guaranteed an evaluative interview (interviews are usually offered by invitation only, upon review of a completed application) that can be conducted on Saturday afternoon, after the event has concluded.  If you are not interested in conducting your interview on the 25th, you will be able to schedule your interview for another time upon completion of the MBA application process.

You may indicate your interest in attending Fisher Debut here.  Once you submit your interest form and resume, we will be in touch with you to inform you whether we have a spot available for you to attend the event.  Attendees will be eligible to receive partial travel reimbursement, if applicable.

We look forward to seeing you in February!
