Winston Fisher Seminar - Spring break 2018 - Application Deadline: Dec. 31, 2017(+)

Spring Break 2018

The College of Arts and Sciences is excited to offer the thirteenth annual Winston Fisher Seminar during the week of Spring Break 2018. Through the foresight and generosity of one of our alumni--Winston Fisher '96 (Philosophy)—12-15  students will travel to New York City for six days and five nights over spring Break 2018 for a series of one-hour conversations with fellow Arts and Sciences alumni to discuss how your liberal arts degree prepares you for a career in various business industries. Preparing and presenting a business plan is the second significant activity during the week, so that you will return to campus armed with a broader outlook of potential careers and more confidence to navigate your first job.

For sophomores, juniors, and seniors in the College of Arts and Sciences (with expected graduation dates of May 2018-May 2020) this will be a resume-enhancing experience that will increase your knowledge about, and confidence in, the job search process. You will experience firsthand the value of your degree in today's marketplace.

All expenses are covered, including the cost of travel between Syracuse and New York City, travel within New York City, lodging, meals, supplies, and events.  A campus representative will escort the group to all meetings and activities.  Your "classroom" will be the offices of Mr. Winston Fisher, who will host you on the first and last days of the Seminar, as well as the offices of select other alumni volunteers.  All locations are in Manhattan. Students will be eligible to earn one credit hour (pass/fail) if they complete all requirements for the course.   

Students will be selected by a Committee appointed by the Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences.

Course requirements include three on-campus mandatory classes, required readings, case study analysis, written response papers, and, while in NYC, development and presentation of a business plan to a small panel of “friendly” judges. The student deemed to have created the most compelling business plan will be awarded $500 by Winston Fisher personally.
