Brandeis International Business School (IBS) offers a rigorous educational experience in the context of an inclusive, caring campus environment. Our faculty and staff always have their doors open to offer personal attention to students. Our wide variety of clubs and organizations fosters inclusiveness, bringing together students with interests ranging from photography to investing.

Classes are interactive, informal and typically small, allowing students to truly get to know their professors and one another. At the same time, Brandeis IBS has a global feel, as students collaborate with classmates from more than 40 nations. Annual celebrations like the Global Gala — complete with music, dance and food from their native countries — serve to make our international students feel at home while also exposing all our students to a breadth of cultural traditions.

The Brandeis IBS Leadership Fellows will help you feel right at home.

Leadership Fellows are second-year Brandeis IBS students who help new students with their academic, cultural and social adjustment to the school upon arrival and serve as peer mentors throughout the academic year. They're trained to understand the needs of first-year students and are a great resource for information about courses, professors and programs, as well as student life at Brandeis IBS and on campus. Meet the 2019 Leadership Fellows.

We also invite you to meet our Admissions staff on campus, on the road or online. Contact us at or 781-736-2252, or via live chat if you have questions.
