The Adam Smith Society is a community of business school students and alumni dedicated to exploring the links among the economy, government, and society. 

The Brandeis IBS Chapter of the Adam Smith Society is a nationwide association of business students and business leaders who believe that business, entrepreneurship, and commerce are mainsprings that keep a society vibrant, creative and prosperous. The Adam Smith Society is affiliated with and supported by the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, a think-tank on public policy issues, such as the economy, energy, infrastructure, healthcare, urban life, education, legal system, culture, and many others.

Events and Highlights

Since its formation in early 2013, the Brandeis IBS Chapter has organized guest lectures, networking events, policy discussion forums and has participated in the annual Adam Smith Society conference in New York City. Our events help broaden your network, inspire you to take charge, and make a difference. All students, particularly those in the MBA program, are encouraged to join.

In the 2016-2017 academic year, the Brandeis IBS Chapter organized speaker sessions with professors and industry leaders, led treks to Wall Street and MassChallenge, and attended the Adam Smith Society Annual Meeting.
