Faculty Excellence & Research

Faculty member Ty Shepfer teaching a class

Faculty thought leaders at The Ohio State University Max M. Fisher College of Business inspire students and bring business education and textbooks to life.

Through scholarly work, mentoring and intellectual leadership, our faculty develop well-rounded graduates — encouraged and emboldened by thought leadership that bridges classrooms, academic journals and boardrooms.

Donor support of faculty empowers Fisher to attract talented thought leaders early in their academic careers, support young and emerging faculty, and retain the world-class teachers who advance their fields through research, inspire students in the classroom and serve their communities.

Generosity that honors the academic dedication of our faculty provides these thought leaders with vital financial flexibility to pursue their passions and to positively impact the future of business through scientific, evidence-based curiosity.

Endowed Chairs and Professorships

The Board of Trustees approves the establishment of endowed chair and professorship positions as well as the appointments of faculty to the chairs. Appointment to an endowed chair and professorship remains the highest honor an academic institution can bestow upon a faculty member.

At Fisher, endowed chairs and professorships recognize and honor faculty members for their outstanding contributions to business education while providing flexibility in funding for their curricular programs and research initiatives.

Establishing an endowed chair or professorship equips Fisher faculty members with the resources necessary to positively impact the lives of our students and future generations of business leaders.
