Two students working together in a Fisher classroom

Academic Departments

Fisher is committed to attracting and retaining the best scholars and teachers.

Their high-impact teaching equips our students to immediately apply knowledge learned in the classroom to today’s business challenges.



They’re creators of research tools, founders of academic journals and originators of programs that have—for more than a century—advanced and elevated students, businesses and industries around the world. They’re our faculty.

Faculty at the Max M. Fisher College of Business have served as a strong foundation for business education at The Ohio State University for generations. These thought leaders are dedicated to creating ideas, encouraging scholars and developing leaders who positively impact their communities and the world. Fisher faculty blend theory with practice to give new meaning to textbooks and bring curriculum to life.

Simply put, our faculty shape students into leaders and leaders into visionaries. They are inspirations in the classroom, researchers in their fields and servants to their communities.
