As a new program at Ohio State and around the country, there may still be time required before employers fully buy into the credibility of the degree and understand how to fully utilize the students graduating with these degrees (basically where they fit between undergraduate finance majors and MBAs). ) The aspiring professional who is a quick learner interested in building relationships (with staff, faculty, students, and professionals) and gaining a wide variety of financial knowledge and experience to add to his/her personal “toolkit” would be the perfect student for the Specialized Masters in Finance at the Fisher College of Business. The momentum of the institution and the sense of community and pride felt by the students (not to mention the staff, faculty, city of Columbus, and the whole state of Ohio) cannot be measured.
Just after two months into starting the program, I had accepted my offer to go into risk management with JP Morgan, an incredible testament to the Ohio State and Fisher brand and an example of how a self-motivated student can thrive in this program.
The Fisher College of Business prepares you, not only to understand the multi-dimensional and evolving world of finance, but to succeed in becoming the financial leader that you want to be upon graduating.

The life of John Otterson began in a coal mining family in County Durham in the first half of the 19th century, and ended with a fall down stairs as a Royal Navy pensioner in Portsmouth 77 years later.
Sometimes men would work in those conditions stripped of all clothing, and wives too would work stripped to the waist.
Interestingly, the government’s investigation into conditions in mines for children was partly the result of public outrage at the morality of this environment, and not necessarily due to any intrinsic abhorrence of child labor.
Jarrow lies about 12 miles north of Sunderland, on the south bank of the River Tyne, which then marked the county border. Paul’s, an ancient church and monastic site, part of which dates back to 681 A. and which is even today Jarrow’s most noteworthy feature.
