Global Reach

At Brandeis International Business School (IBS), students take advantage of our rich globally-minded offerings and opportunities, from our more than 20 study abroad partners and immersion opportunities to our network of 2,200 alums located in more than 100 countries around the world.

Global fluency, to us, means more than language. It means having a firm grasp of cultural nuances; recognizing the interplay of economic, political and social forces; understanding the dynamics of cross-border commerce; and finding opportunity in volatility across global markets. It means knowing how the world works and being able to thrive in it.

Brandeis IBS’ student and faculty population is decidedly cosmopolitan; one recent graduate likened the school to an "Olympic Village.” More than 60 nations are represented and, while English is a common thread, a plethora of languages can be heard through the hallways on any given day.
