Information for Current Brandeis Undergraduate Students

“You will gain valuable leadership and teamwork skills, a global perspective on business, and insight into the ethical and social responsibilities of owners and managers.” -- Professor Edward Bayone, Undergraduate Business Program Chair

Brandeis University Advantage

Our undergraduate programs honor the commitment to excellence of Brandeis University, one of the world’s leading research universities. For undergraduate students, Brandeis University and Brandeis International Business School (IBS) offer multiple ways to enhance your liberal arts experience with a substantial, skills-driven undergraduate Business Major and Minor. 

At Brandeis IBS you can take courses taught by graduate-level professors, including renowned scholars who are thought leaders in their disciplines and leading practitioners who bring their real-world experiences to the classroom. Students develop a solid foundation in core business concepts and a better understanding of the social and global context of business.

Upon completing your undergraduate degree, you will have deepened your academic expertise, honed important business skills and gotten a leg-up in a competitive post-college job market.

5-Year and Accelerated Graduate Programs

Brandeis undergraduates can pursue an accelerated graduate degree, beginning coursework in their senior year and earning a master's in as little as one additional year of study.

The special five-year BA/MA is open to Brandeis University and Wellesley College undergraduates with a strong foundation in economics and/or finance. The program begins in the student's senior year. The Accelerated MA program is open to Brandeis University students who have studied economics, and the Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program is open to all students with a background in finance. These programs are completed after the student's senior year. 

These graduate programs prepare Brandeis undergraduates for careers in international finance, economics, business, consulting, science, technology, engineering or math. Helping students to finish their graduate studies earlier than their peers, these programs have proven especially helpful for positions that require strong analytical and technical skills.

Students interested in the Business Major/Minor or the BA/MA  should discuss with their Undergraduate Academic Advisor the course plans and requirements.
