Majors

The choice is truly yours.

After completing Fisher’s core course work, MBAs select a major. Majors give you a chance to learn from top business minds in their preferred discipline—like finance professor René Stulz, who was named one of the "100 Most Influential People in Finance" by Treasury and Risk Management magazine.

Completing an MBA requires 57 credit hours of coursework, which students choose from lists tailored to their discipline. Students are open to take 30 credit hours of elective coursework to double major, pursue a career track, or simply explore courses of personal interest.
