Some of you may have been looking out for the next scheduled information session. This quarter is busy with so many wonderful progams and activities that we have found it difficult to reserve large rooms and dates for our sessions! We now have an April date on the calendar, so register here to attend the next information session for the MBA program for Working Professionals. We will be skipping May, but stay tuned for the June date!

All Fisher graduate students are on their well-deserved spring breaks this week. Everyone will be back on campus by next Monday (March 28). Why is this of concern to anyone who might be reading this blog post? If you have contacted the Fisher MBA Admissions Office via its email account (firstname.lastname@example.org), it is likely you have interacted with our MBA student ambassadors. When students are not on campus, it decreases our staffing that handles these general inquiries by at least 80%.
The email@example.com email account will be monitored during spring break – but it will likely not be checked as often as it normally is since the number of people to assist with the account is significantly reduced during spring break. We will be back to “normal” staffing levels next week. Until then, we thank you for your patience!
P.S. If you have anything that is urgent, you can always contact the Fisher Graduate Programs Office directly at +1-614-292-8511

As many of you know from attending our monthly information sessions, we generally hold them on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm. We always have a strong turnout and it seems that almost every applicant to the WP MBA program has attended an info session (or more) at some point before deciding to apply. As we are planning to schedule our next set of upcoming info sessions, I thought I would see if any of you have thoughts about the time of day or time of week when we host them. Would you be able to make a 5:30 pm session, or would it be too difficult to get out of work and to campus by that time? Do Wednesday evenings work well for you? Do you enjoy the opportunity to come to campus, or would you like the option of a webinar/virtual (online) session? Feel free to share your thoughts by commenting on the blog post and we will consider your feedback!
We look forward to seeing you at our next information session!
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. The orientation for Working Professional students beginning class this quarter is actually this evening!
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!
You can always sign up for one of our upcoming information sessions – this Wednesday’s session is just about full, so if you haven’t signed up, act quickly or join us on October 13!
