Jacob is a third-year student majoring in finance with minors in real estate and Spanish.
He is a student in the consulting Industry Immersion Program – a fully immersive experience in which students explore an industry of interest and engage with real companies to work on projects. Jacob enjoys the Immersion program because it is an opportunity to expand his learning outside of his major. As part of the program, he traveled to Chicago to network with alumni, visit companies such as the Accenture Innovation Lab and PwC, which provided project ideas and advice, and explore the city. Jacob will also be traveling to Italy as part of the Industry Immersion Program.
Global experiences and perspective have been critical to Jacob’s education at Fisher. He recently traveled to Japan as a student as part of the Kakehashi Project – a 10-day trip sponsored by the Japanese government in which he spent time with a local host family and took part in a presentation to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Jacob is already planning his trip back.
Jacob has grown and developed as a leader at Fisher and, thanks to opportunities such as Dean’s Leadership Academy and projects with local businesses, he has learned that an effective leader does not need to be in charge, but instead takes action. He has learned how to utilize self-awareness in a group setting – leveraging his strengths, and having others help with his weaknesses in order to maximize the outcome.
In his free time, Jacob enjoys running, playing golf and serving as a basketball scorekeeper for intramural sports. Jacob’s favorite Ohio State memory was rushing the football field in 2016 after a thrilling overtime win over That Team Up North.
