Preview Fisher during our Season Premiere Event!

If you have been doing some research about our program and still can’t decide whether Fisher is right for you, I encourage you to attend our annual “preview” weekend, Fisher Season Premiere.  The weekend activities are designed to give prospective students an overview of the Fisher MBA program and a sneak peek into life as a Fisher MBA student.

Highlights from the event include:

This year’s event will be held from Friday, November 5 – Saturday, November 6, 2010.  We do offer some travel reimbursement for our guests as well as take care of your hotel accommodations at the Crowne Plaza Hotel downtown Columbus.

This is an invitation-only event with limited capacity, so express your interest *now* by submitting your information here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

We’re busy, but we still want to hear from you!

This time of the year is VERY hectic for the Fisher Graduate Programs Office. In addition to being the office through which you will submit your MBA application, this office also organizes all of the “beginning of year” activities for admitted students. First day of classes is September 22 and all of the graduate programs have orientation activities occurring right now and through September 21.

So, yes, we’re very busy … but do not let this dissuade you from contacting us if you have any questions – just note it might take us an extra day or so to get back to you. Our contact information is in the upper right corner on this page and every page of this blog. We want to hear from you – so remember, please contact us if you have any questions!

Our first Spotlight event is this Friday and our next one is Saturday, October 2.  Sign up for one now!
