Full-Time MBA
Red Carpet Weekend

Fisher College of Business

Each year Fisher hosts a VIP Red Carpet event to get admitted Full-Time MBA students excited about the Fisher MBA experience. Students have a chance to connect with classmates during a reception at Ohio Stadium (with tour), see Fisher's campus, participate in faculty and career management sessions, and learn about available opportunities. We encourage admitted Full-Time MBA students to attend this on-campus event.

Attention: Autumn 2023 Full-Time MBA Admitted Students

The agenda for Red Carpet Weekend 2023 (April 14-15, 2023) is currently being finalized. Registration will be posted here when available, and you will receive an email with the option to RSVP "yes" or "no". Attendance is strongly recommended for students in the U.S.
