Fisher Board Fellows

Fisher Board Fellows (FBF) is a student-run organization within Fisher College of Business. FBF brings together the Columbus community and the college by selecting Fisher MBA candidates and placing them on boards of area non-profits as non-voting members for 18 month terms.

Fellows, mentored by a board member and with the full support of the non-profit executive director and board chair, contribute to their non-profit organizations by attending all board and assigned committee meetings. In addition, Fellows complete a strategic, board-level project that harnesses the Fellow’s business expertise and adds long-term value to the partner organization.

Mission Statement

The mission of Fisher Board Fellows is to serve our communities through partnerships with non-profit boards. Fisher Board Fellows accomplishes this by providing strategic business assistance that helps each partner board fulfill its organization’s mission, while exposing Fellows to meaningful non-profit leadership experiences that exercise and develop their business acumen.
