We make use of and build on the liberal arts foundation to develop
students who have strong analytical skills, and who are able to think,
write, and communicate clearly and effectively. Graduates will be able
to combine the theory and practice of management with an interpersonal/
cross-cultural understanding of the diverse global environment in which
we live, and will be well prepared for ethical decision-making.
Students hone their problem-solving and analytical skills through
collaborative learning projects. They recognize the value of teamwork as
they practice their leadership roles and abilities in various
team-oriented activities. The Management program focuses on the active
involvement of the student in the learning process and the effective
application of management theory through a proactive program of
experiential opportunities. Such tasks as simulations, library research,
team presentations and computer projects in a variety of management
settings allow the students at Fisher to combine theoretical “classroom”
knowledge with practical real-world experience.
The Hospitality program supplements classroom learning with field trip opportunities, allowing students to gain valuable industry experience. This is accomplished through volunteer activities, hotel and site visits, one-day field trips, and a 120-hour travel-related internship. Additionally, the program is dedicated to helping students develop their critical and analytical thinking, communication, research, decision-making, and interpersonal skills.
