Internship Services for Employers - Fisher Futures

The students who have been accepted into the Fisher Futures Investment Banking Program at The Ohio State University are among the brightest of our finance majors who have demonstrated an appetite  for hard work, strong analytical ability and an intense desire to work in the investment banking industry.

Fisher Futures is an initiative that was designed to identify high ability finance majors with an interest in investment banking. The students must meet a set of academic criteria in order to apply and then go through a 6-month selection process that includes:

  • Writing an essay about their interest in investment banking
  • A personal interview with a panel of Fisher staff
  • An assignment designed to showcase their analytical abilities
  • Reading two books about the industry and writing a summary reflection on each
  • Completing Wall Street Prep, web-based financial modeling certification process
  • Doing informational interviews and attending presentations designed to increase their knowledge about the industry

After successfully completing these tasks, a final interview will determine if the student is selected into the program. Once a part of the Fisher Futures Investment Banking Program, the students take a class and are coached by Fisher staff to prepare for the demanding investment banking industry.

 

 The Fisher Futures Program Works

“The Fisher Futures program works because it identifies and screens for the top candidates who can succeed in the industry.  I have been very impressed with the caliber of students and the knowledge they have demonstrated during the interview process.”
