Become a Business Nut: 2011 applications are online!

Posted by Alison M. on Aug 16, 2010 3:59:14 PM

The Fisher MBA for Working Professionals program is now accepting applications for 2011. Our deadline for the winter quarter (January) start is November 8.

Perhaps you've been thinking about going back to school for some time now, but you aren't sure that you want to give up your precious evenings. As summer draws to a close, you may be anxiously anticipating the return of your favorite TV shows and sitting down to watch them after a long day of work. Well, spend a few minutes on the Ohio State campus right before fall quarter and you will realize that there is no better place to be. The leaves are beginning to change, the weather is cooling off, and the campus is buzzing with the sights and sounds of Buckeye football. But MBA students don't really care about any of that, now, do they?

There are many different reasons why you might want to consider pursuing an MBA from Fisher. At Fisher, you will get a world-class education from faculty who are thought-leaders in their fields. You will learn in a supportive, intimate and flexible environment while having access to the tremendous resources that exist at The Ohio State University. You will have the opportunity to interact with a talented group of diverse individuals (your peers!) who will greatly enhance your educational experience. And, according to a recent Business Week survey, you will increase your salary by approximately 30% upon graduation from the program.

The Fisher MBA for Working Professionals has been ranked as a top-ten Part-Time MBA program by US News and World Report. We are now accepting applications for 2011. Our deadline for our winter quarter (January) start is November 8. I encourage you to attend one of our upcoming information sessions to learn more about our program and how you can become a Business Buckeye! Our next information session will be held on September 15, 2010. We hope to see you at Fisher soon!

Now accepting 2011 applications

Posted by Jason Hart on Aug 16, 2010 3:58:11 PM

The 2011-2012 application season for the Fisher MBA program has officially begun! Our 2011 application is now live, so click here to get started.

We have changed our application deadlines from last year, so if you haven't seen the latest deadlines, I have posted them here for your review. Please note that we review applications on a rolling basis. This means that we continue to review applications as they become complete and we make admissions decisions on an ongoing basis. Pay attention to the published deadlines, but know that you are encouraged to submit applications prior to a deadline, as well as in between deadlines.

1st deadline: October 29, 2010*

*Applicants who submit by this deadline and who are offered admission to the Full-Time MBA program and enroll at Fisher will receive a $1,000 travel voucher that can be used to offset the cost of academic or professional travel expenses during their time at Fisher. Many of our students will attend national conferences, choose to participate in an elective trek, enroll in our Emerging Markets Field Study Course, study abroad, or participate in our Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship program.

2nd deadline: December 15, 2010**

**Applicants who submit by this deadline will be considered for all available merit-based funding opportunities. Some merit-based awards are exclusively reserved for candidates who submit by this deadline, so I encourage you to apply early if financial aid will play a significant role in your selection process.

3rd deadline: January 5, 2011

4th deadline: March 1, 2011

5th deadline: April 15, 2011

We will continue to accept applications after April 15 on a space available basis. There will likely be little to no merit-based funding for candidates who apply after the last deadline, so keep that in mind if you plan to apply in late spring.

Please feel free to write comments, as I will be checking the blog regularly and welcome your questions, especially if the answers will be valuable to the Fisher MBA applicant pool.
