Introducing our newest Recruiting and Admissions staff member

Meet Rebecca Zurek, Assistant Director of Recruiting and Admissions!

Prior to joining the Admissions team at Fisher, Rebecca earned a Bachelor of Science from SUNY College at Cortland and a Master of Labor and Human Resources from The Ohio State University. While working at The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company in their Global Training & Development department following graduation, Rebecca found herself drawn back to the Ohio State campus for recruiting events. She soon realized that her passion was to help recruit for the very programs that made an impact on her while she was at the university!

Prior to moving to Ohio, Rebecca grew up living on opposite sides of the country in both central New York and the lower part of Alaska. While completing her undergraduate degree she worked in a Psychophysiology Research Laboratory and ran intercollegiate Track & Field as a multi-event heptathlete. As a runner who is from small towns, Rebecca now enjoys jogging around town and exploring all of the wonderful things that Columbus city has to offer!

A few of her favorite things:

Place in Columbus: The Ohio State University Oval, The Short North District, Goodale Park

Restaurant: Ray Ray’s Barbeque Pit, Wildflower Café, Skillet

TV Show: Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Skins

Food: Both coffee and cheese play large roles in her diet

Book: City of Glass by Paul Austere, 1984 by George Orwell, and anything written by William Shakespeare


Meet us at Fisher – here’s how!

We offer many opportunities for prospective MBA candidates to interact with us during the recruiting season.  We recognize that selecting an MBA program can be an overwhelming and daunting process – there are thousands of academic institutions that offer business degrees!  Given that you are going to invest a significant amount of money and time (two years of your life!) in a full-time program, it is so important that you take the time to visit the schools you are considering.

Here are three primary ways you can visit us at Fisher:

1) Contact the Graduate Programs Office to set up an individual visit with a student ambassador or admissions staff member.  Call 614-292-8511 or email

2) Attend one of our Spotlight Events.   Spotlight events enable you to come to Fisher for half a day to attend an information session, interact with a faculty panel, get a tour of campus, and have dinner with current MBA students.  Prospective students may opt to set up informational interviews with an admissions representative prior to the Spotlight Event, if you are interested in speaking with someone about your individual interests and goals.  Spotlight events are open to all prospective MBA students.  Our first Spotlight event will be held Friday, September 17.

3) Apply to attend Fisher Season Premiere.  Fisher Season Premiere is an invitation-only recruiting weekend that is designed to give you a preview of life as a Fisher MBA student.  This year’s event will be held November 5-6, 2010.
