    Individual Campus Visit

    Whether you are in the beginning stages of your program search or you have already decided that Fisher’s SMF program is the right fit for you, we encourage you to visit our campus and connect with us. Each visit is personalized and organized by our Student Ambassadors. For planning purposes, we request that you schedule a campus visit two weeks in advance to ensure that someone will be available to meet with you. However, we understand that at times your plans may bring you to Columbus with little advance notice, so we do try to accommodate walk-ins.

    Applicants will have the opportunity to:

    • Meet with faculty and members of the Specialized Master in Finance Admissions Committee
    • Tour Fisher's campus
    • Tour some highlights of Ohio State's campus


    If you have started or submitted an application, you will also get the chance to sit in on a class, tour the Fisher campus, meet one-on-one with a faculty member, enjoy an informal lunch with our current SMF students, and discuss last-minute questions with a member of the SMF Admissions Committee. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Rebecca Zurek on our SMF admissions and recruitment team.
