Brandeis IBS’ involvement in Latin America has been made possible through the professional and connections the school has made with universities, scholarship programs and external associations.
Brandeis IBS has partnerships with 20 universities worldwide, giving students the opportunity to participate in overseas internships and academic exchanges. Among the partner universities are Brazil’s Fundação Getúlio Vargas and Mexico’s Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM).
Brandeis University was also selected as one of 18 U.S. academic institutions to participate in the new Institute of International Education's (IIE) International Academic Partnership Program, which is focused on building partnerships between higher education in the United States and Brazil.
