Fisher College is a private institution that grants both baccalaureate and associate degrees. The College is located on Beacon Street in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. The College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

History[edit]

The College was founded in 1903 by Myron C. Fisher and Edmund H. Fisher under the name Winter Hill Business College. The curriculum developed at the time emphasized vocational preparation, a tradition that has strongly influenced the College's mission over the years. In 1910, the name of the institution was changed to Fisher Business College. The original campus was located in Somerville, Massachusetts, and was moved to the current Beacon Street location in 1939. During the 1940s, the College was split into two separate entities: The Fisher School for Men and The Fisher School for Women. In 1975, The Division of Accelerated and Professional Studies was established. Today, the Division of Accelerated and Professional Studies offers degree programs at their Boston, Attleboro, and New Bedford locations. In 1998, the College established an Online Division, currently ranked #12 best in the nation by OEDb, a nationally recognized distance learning organization.

The College's Day Division became co-educational in 1998.
