Louis Brandeis was among the first to define business as a profession worthy of pursuit. Before his appointment to the Supreme Court, he practiced commercial law. He was fascinated both by the way business worked and the impact it had on society. While the business world of his day differed in many respects from that of our own, many of his insights still have the ability to open up new perspectives and stimulate debate. At Brandeis, we believe that a business education consists of much more than the acquisition of a set of practical skills. We emphasize critical thinking, broad perspective, and multicultural understanding. In this way, we hope to prepare students to be responsible and thoughtful citizens in the business world of tomorrow. The business program introduces undergraduates to the functions, opportunities, and challenges of business enterprises, and helps the students to acquire skills and perspectives essential to a business career. Administered by the Brandeis International Business School (IBS) and the College of Arts and Sciences, the curriculum allows students to combine ideas and methods from liberal arts disciplines with an intensive education in business thinking and practice. The curriculum offers multiple paths for students to develop connections between their business studies and the "non-financial" measures of success they value – from concerns with global society and sustainability to innovation in science and art. Students in the business program participate in IBS life. IBS professors teach undergraduate business courses, and students in the program regularly attend events and talks at the graduate school.
