The MBA program at Fisher far exceeded my expectations. Given that the program was mostly remote and online, it allowed me to improve on a number of skills such as adaptability, time management, and overall communication which set me up for success in starting my position with PwC. I appreciate all the professors of the MBA program for making their courses engaging and being supportive in such unprecedented times. ”
