Immersion Programs

Brandeis International Business School (IBS) offers several opportunities for immersion programs which take students on a learning experience around the world. 

Hassenfeld Fellow Overseas Immersion Program

The goal of the Hassenfeld Program is to introduce participants to the economies of dynamic overseas markets, which serve as meaningful case studies to illustrate important business concepts. Students learn about the countries through class work and discussion panels before traveling for a hands-on experience.

World Financial Centers

Organized through our Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program, this immersion opportunity acquaints students with institutions of a different financial market, provides political and social context in which the market operates, and helps students develop tools to analyze real world questions that emerge from foreign markets. 

The one-week course includes presentations by high level officials from leading financial sector institutions, as well as professors from major international universities.

Before departing, the group attends lectures that give them their first perspectives on the focus country's rich history and culture, a key element to understanding its dynamic present. Focus cities have included Prague, Madrid, Santiago, Warsaw, Frankfurt and Istanbul.
