a leading industrialist, philanthropist and public servant. Mr.

management institutions in the country spearheaded the construction
of a state-of-the-art, six-building campus. In recognition of his

narrowing the focus of its programs, recruiting leading faculty,
placing a renewed emphasis on experiential learning, and offering
a wide range of international study options. Faculty and staff

strengthened their commitment to diversity, and created innovative
academic and corporate partnerships. As a result, Fisher's international
reputation continues to rise and is reflected in rankings which

at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
