As you may have noticed there has been an increase in visitors to the Fisher campus of late. The reason is its recruitment season! A whole variety of people have made the trip from far and near to experience the Fisher welcome as the college gets to show off its friendliness, professionalism and an MBA program that has so many opportunities for everyone. Prospective students have visited classes and seen the campus with trips to Fisher Commons and the RPAC to name but a few. Professors have met with prospects to discuss their interests and see how the program can fit their needs and after all that they have time to enjoy wonderful lunches at our very own Blackwell hotel.
The culture of the program and its people is on show and it has greatly impressed many of the visiting students who have enjoyed their experience immensely. They are getting a good sense of how active the college is in a range of ways, from career development to its international commitment. The work ethic of the college has been impressed upon the visitors also and to that extent it has been a very busy week for current students!
As an ambassador I was also able to proudly talk about the talented second year team that won the Wake Forest 2010 marketing summit; since the prestige in winning this competition cannot be underestimated. International teams from London College of Business, IESE Barcelona and Dartmouth’s Tuck were left in their wake on the way to winning the $50,000 first place prize. The win is an excellent result for Fisher as it increases the programs profile dramatically on a range of fronts nationally and globally.
The hunt for internships continues unabated with more and more students getting accepted into the interview processes and receiving offers to open up new career opportunities for themselves even as we pass the halfway mark in our first year at fisher. Keep up the good work everyone.
