Fisher College of Business: Leader in Online Learning

Launched in 2003, Fisher College of Business’ BSBA Regional Distance Learning program offers a distance business degree for students on the Lima, Marion, Mansfield and Newark campuses. Its primary strength is that it allows students to remain in their community while obtaining a degree from Fisher College of Business – just as if they were on the Columbus campus. In addition, students who wanted to pursue a Business Minor can also accomplish this while remaining on a regional campus. The Business Management degree offers a seamless transfer to Columbus campus if a student wants to pursue a Business Specialization.

The Business Management degree is delivered in a blended classroom format using pre-recorded online lectures and live weekly sessions via video conference.  The live sessions allow the instructor to deliver class lectures to the regional sites just as if the students were on main campus.
