Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis


The school was established in 1994 as the Graduate School of International Economics and Finance with 50 students and two degrees: a PhD and the Master of Arts in International Economics and Finance - Lemberg Program (MA). In 1998, the school launched the MBA and Master of Science in Finance (MSF) programs, and in 2003 changed its name to Brandeis International Business School.

With data growing evermore critical to competitive advantage, the school launched a Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) program in 2018 to prepare students to innovate at the intersection of business and data.
