They will practice application of skills in tasks which involve solving current problems realistic in learning environments.
Fisher’s full-time business faculty consists of business professionals who have had significant experience working in their field prior to becoming higher education teachers. They are fully committed and available for individual coaching and academic assistance. The part-time faculty are equally important as they are current professionals in their field, who bring up to date knowledge and experience of what works and what doesn’t work in their area of work.
