The Career Development Center assists students in their pursuit of permanent employment by creating opportunities to engage with companies and organizations through on-campus recruiting, job-posting programs, referrals, alumni introductions and arranging student group visits.
We receive many job postings from employers who are specifically seeking Brandeis IBS students and alumni for both internships and full-time jobs. We have approximately 2,000 registered employers on our career management system, CareerFOCUS, which is constantly evolving and growing.
We work with student clubs to arrange industry-based trips to meet with leading companies. These visits help students network for summer internships and full-time jobs. Some examples of clubs participating in company visits include the Global Markets Investment Club, the Consulting Club, the Marketing Club and the Technology Club.
Students are invited to alumni gatherings in Boston, New York and London, and have access to alumni databases, strong connections with the corporate world, visiting executives and Brandeis IBS alumni.
Select Brandeis IBS students are eligible to receive an additional stipend while interning at qualifying non-profit, public sector or economic development organizations.
