The Brandeis International Business School (IBS) is a pioneering school dedicated to preparing students for the careers of the global economy in international business, economics, and finance. We teach state-of-the-art theory, immerse students in international experiences, and connect them to best practice in business and policy. IBS is a unique school for the following reasons:

International to the Core
We are truly focused on the global economy. From a unique introductory course on the global economic environment to a wide range of advanced electives, the IBS experience is thoroughly international. More than half of our students come from Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and international experiences are built into our programs in partnership with major foreign schools and companies.

Our faculty includes not only distinguished researchers in international business, economics, and finance, but also leading practitioners in banking, investments and consulting. Classes are interactive, informal and typically small, with professors readily accessible. Learn more at http://www.brandeis.edu/global/about_faculty.php.
Many senior executives (and younger alumni in business) visit the School each semester through our CEO Forum, our research institutes, and informal meetings with classes. Our courses work with businesses on current problems, and a Board of Overseers consisting of business leaders guides our overall strategy.
