The Rosenberg Institute of Global Finance at Brandeis IBS

The Rosenberg Institute of Global Finance seeks to analyze and anticipate major trends in global financial markets, institutions, and regulations, while developing the information and ideas required to solve emerging problems.

The institute also addresses the policy implications of economic globalization, sponsoring informal exchanges among scholars and practitioners, conducting research and policy analyses, and participating in the school’s teaching programs.

A major goal of the Institute is to bridge the gap between academic research and the insights of business and policy leaders. The institute, founded in 2002, is named for co-founders Dr. Barbara C. Rosenberg '54 and Mr. Richard M. Rosenberg.
