Across its five Schools, Fisher offers nearly 40 majors in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, business, education, and nursing; 11 pre-professional programs; and master’s and doctoral programs in business, nursing, education, pharmacy, and public health. The University’s residential campus boasts a robust living and learning community and a successful intercollegiate athletics program. Fisher is a community where all are welcome, regardless of religious or cultural background.

The University continues to honor its founders, the Congregation of St. Basil, by embracing their motto, “Teach Me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge.” We are located in Pittsford, N.Y., seven miles outside of the city of Rochester. The campus is situated on 164 park-like acres—a beautiful setting for a warm, friendly campus community.

The School of Business, Fisher’s first professional School created in 2022, houses undergraduate programs in accounting, finance, management, and marketing as well as an MBA. Home to more than 500 undergraduate students majoring across the undergraduate disciplines and nearly 100 graduate students in the MBA, the School of Business is known and respected for preparing job-ready and career-focused students. The School of Business has been accredited by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) since April 2003. AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting, and is the hallmark of excellence in business education and has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business programs. It represents a rigorous peer review of a school’s practices against globally set standards and plays an important role in recruiting faculty and students.
