Fisher Board Fellows
The mission of the Fisher Board Fellows (FBF) is to serve our community through partnerships with non-profit boards. Fisher Board Fellows accomplishes this by providing strategic business assistance that helps each partner board fulfill its organization's mission, while exposing Fellows to diverse experiences that exercise their business acumen.
Founded in the summer of 2004, Fisher Board Fellows is a student-run organization at the Fisher College of Business at Ohio State University. FBF brings together the Columbus community and the College by selecting Fisher MBA candidates and placing them on boards of area non-profits as non-voting members for eighteen months.
Fellows, mentored by a board member and with the full support of the non-profit executive director and board chair, contribute to their non-profit organizations by attending all board and assigned committee meetings. In addition, Fellows complete a strategic, board-level project that harnesses the Fellow's business expertise and adds long-term value to the partner organization.
FBF develops relationships that are beneficial to all parties. Fellows gain valuable experience working with nonprofits and senior business leaders. Boards receive new perspectives from experienced professionals and educated analysis on topics integral to the success of their organizations.
