Bringing People In
Brandeis' graduate programs invite many guests speakers to campus. In November 2010, the Perlmutter Institute for Global Business Leadership welcomed Dr. Klaus Scharioth, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany (pictured).
Sending People Out
Adam Rosenberg (pictured), M.A. dual degree candidate in Sustainable International Development and Coexistence & Conflict, spent time in Liberia in 2010 doing conflict and security work for the Liberia Democratic Institute (LDI), a Non-Governmental Organization located in Monrovia.
Graduate Exchange Partnerships
International experiences are a required part of Brandeis University's two professional schools, linking graduate students with partner universities and organizations abroad.
IBS's MA and MBA programs are among the very few in the world to require students to have international experience by the time they graduate. The School maintains exchange partnerships with 17 partner universities, allowing for a semester or summer of study abroad.
Each year IBS holds a seminar on a leading global financial center in collaboration with a local academic institution. The seminars have taken place in Paris, Frankfurt and Tokyo, and London. Taught by prominent academics and business people, they provide an exceptional insight into the workings of global financial markets and institutions.
All graduate students in SID undertake a second-year practicum in partnership with organizations and communities.
