In addition to the basic course requirements, students are asked to:

  • Attend all sessions
    These sessions are packed with information, and you will have a chance to apply the learning from these sessions to various case studies and projects that will be part of the cluster experience.
  • Engage
    Active participation is expected of every Fisher student. Company executives expect and get the best from our students... that's why they hire them. 
  • Dress for success
    Business casual attire is required of all students, unless notified otherwise.
  • Participate inside and outside of class
    Our students are given many co-corricular experiences to enhance their skills as professionals.  It is an expectation that you attend events as appropriate.
