In Their Words

"Coming to Fisher was one of the best decisions I made. Not only am I learning all the intricacies of business at Fisher, but as well as having the support needed to succeed. For example, being part of the FLGA not only gave me the chance to participate in events such as the NSHMBA, but also gave me a chance to directly interact with my fellows abroad."

“Deciding to pursue an MBA through the joint Law and MBA program has been the best career / education decision I have made. I joint FLGA mainly because of the people and the opportunity to interact with students that share similar cultural values as me. Additionally, with the help of the Office of Minority Student Services, the FLGA successfully sponsored students to attend the National Society of Hispanic MBAs in Atlanta, GA this past October. Overall, my experience with FLGA and its members has been exceptional.”
