"I joined FPS as a way to support my passions for consulting, problem solving, and building relationships. FPS provided a practical way to apply classroom theory to real company/organization issues (without having to wait until the summer or graduation). With a primarily corporate background, I was able to consult with a small, entrepreneurial company through FPS - which helped round out my experience. FPS was a great partner to help connect me with a variety of companies (large/small, local/national) while learning from the other student consultants around me."

"Fisher Professional Services provided me with the opportunity to apply the teachings of the MBA program in a real-world context.  The organization offered exposure to and connection with leaders in a variety of industries.  FPS was a launching point to a successful career in consulting and the start of a life long bond with Partners in my class and beyond.  As a founding member of FPS, it has been an honor to watch the organization grow and positively impact the MBA experience for hundreds of Fisher students.”

"FPS was one of the highlights of my experience at Fisher. Before classes started, I was fortunate enough to lead a consulting team at a Cadbury plant in Dublin, Ireland. Through that endeavor, I learned about business operations from a factory level and consulting as team, explored a new city and country, made great friends, and better defined my career goals. It was a great time that I will not soon forget. And, when it became time to apply for jobs, FPS was an excellent resource to help me prepare for case interviews. I encourage all incoming students to explore all that FPS can offer to enrich their time at Ohio State."

“Fisher Professional Services has provided me with numerous opportunities to develop and to strengthen competencies critical to a successful career in consulting. It has been a wonderful complement to the traditional classroom education I have received from the Fisher College of Business. Personally, I not only value the client engagement and project management experiences, but I have truly enjoyed applying what I have learned to solve problems and to create useful, tangible solutions for real world clients."
