The Fisher Student Experience

Involved. Open. Engaging. Unique.

As a top-ranked, small, full-time program situated within one of the nation’s largest research universities, the Fisher MBA experience is unique. Add to that our location - in the midst of a dynamic, progressive, and friendly Midwest city with a strong business base that includes many Fortune 500 companies - and you have a winning combination.

The Fisher community is comprised of a globally heterogeneous population of students, faculty, and active alumni in more than 80 countries. As a Fisher MBA student, you will be part of this community of individuals who have an incredible breadth of backgrounds and experiences to share. Our location and approach to education leads to a uniquely comfortable environment that is equally attractive to men and women, and to professionals from diverse fields, including the military, the sciences, and the arts and humanities.

With more than 30 academic, professional, philanthropic, cultural and social student organizations and more than 10 Centers of Excellence, Fisher students participate in a uniquely integrated and holistic graduate experience that provides a myriad of opportunities to lead, grow and develop. Our integrated working and living environment - Fisher Commons - even allows students to extend this involvement and interaction beyond the classroom and Fisher campus.

Our six-building complex covers nearly 400,000 square feet and features all the technology you expect from a top business school, including 100 percent wireless Internet access, web-based instructional support, videoconferencing, and satellite capabilities.
