Fisher Reimagines MBA Offering, Moves Program Fully Online

February 21, 2022

Beginning this summer, students enrolling in St. John Fisher College’s MBA program will experience a fully-online, reimagined program that will sharpen their business acumen and help fast-track their career advancement.

The 30-credit program, which is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), can be completed in one year and includes both synchronous and asynchronous learning components. Students in the MBA program can choose from four areas of concentration: accounting, general management, health services management, and the pharmaceutical industry.

“I'm excited about the refresh of the MBA program,” said Dr. Therese Sprinkle, associate dean of the School of Business and director of the MBA program. “Offering the program fully online, in 14-week semesters, with a weekly synchronous element helps students keep the Fisher connection and touch alive, and assists them in greater balance in their work-school-life.”

The creation of the Walter and Barbara Parkes Trading Lab within the School of Business now means every student in the MBA program obtains Bloomberg Certification. Using Bloomberg Technology—the same financial platform used by the world’s leading banks, corporations, and government agencies—students are immersed in the financial industry, exploring economic indicators, equity portfolios, and earnings forecasts through real-world case studies.

Graduates of Fisher’s MBA program enter a strong network of fellow alumni who hold positions at organizations including Constellation Brands, ADP, the Bonadio Group, Excellus, PwC, Insero & Co., and L3Harris, among others. With robust support from the College’s Center for Career and Academic Planning, nearly all of the program’s graduates have job opportunities upon program completion.

Information Sessions for the MBA program will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1; 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 30; and 5 p.m. on Wednesday April 13. For more information or to register for a session, email
