Three distinct features of our curriculum put the Fisher MBA graduate at the top of the employer's picklist.


Students chart their MBA journey with the help of success coaches to ensure their curricula, co-curricular and career management activities and programming help achieve their unique career goals. Students get to pick from an exhaustive list of courses that are designed to provide competence in a particular area/field. At Fisher, we call it The MBA Pathways.
