Fisher College of Business has proudly fostered a diverse, supportive and inclusive learning environment since the college’s earliest days when Mary Helen Wolfe studied business at what was then known as the College of Commerce and Journalism at Ohio State. Wolfe, who graduated in 1919, became the first recorded female graduate of the college, and nearly 100 years later, Fisher continues to provide an enriching educational experience for women seeking a degree from a top-ranked business college.

Applications are now CLOSED. Check back in SP18.
