Global Brandeis by the Numbers

Founded in 1948, Brandeis quickly established an international reputation. The ground-breaking Wien International Scholarship Program pioneered international education in the U.S., giving more than 800 promising young leaders from over 100 countries a chance for a high-quality education. And Brandeis’ two professional schools — Brandeis International Business School and the Heller School for Social Policy and Management — have had a global dimension since their inception.
