Latin America Initiative

“Latin America is rapidly making its mark in the global economy. It’s rich with opportunities, and Brandeis International Business School (IBS) is eager to be part of efforts to build alliances in the region across business, academia, and government.” — Brandeis IBS Dean Bruce Magid


The initiative focuses on five areas:

  • Increasing awareness of the region’s economy, business opportunities, and cultural significance
  • Building partnerships with leading universities and corporations in the region
  • Paving the way for professional opportunities for students and alumni
  • Strengthening the on-campus Latin American community
  • Sustaining our overseas connections through continued involvement and donations from our alumni
