Fisher College of Business – Ohio State University


The Ohio State University business school was originally founded in the spring of 1916 as the College of Commerce and Journalism, housed at Page Hall. In 1927, the school was renamed as the College of Commerce and Administration, just a few years before the establishment of the school’s MBA program. After decades of expansion, including the addition of an Executive Education program in the mid-1950s and numerous name changes, the school received a $20 million donation from ’30 alum Max Fisher. His gift helped officially rename the business school as the Max M. Fisher College of Business in 1993.

The Ohio State University Max M. Fisher College of Business’s MBA program is located on the main campus in Columbus, OH. Fisher offers a Full-Time MBA (on-campus), a Working Professional MBA (on-campus, online or both), and an Executive MBA program. Hallmarks of their MBA programs include:
