IBSSA: the representative voice and social association for students

Brandeis International Business School (IBS) aims to ensure the wellbeing of its students, that they have a voice to represent them and a social outlet to get involved in during their time at the school. For this reason, they introduced the IBS Student Association (IBSSA). IBSSA organises student programs, activities, cultural celebrations, leadership opportunities and community engagement. It also aims to represent the interests of the student body by providing a platform for discussions and to relay concerns to faculty and staff.

The below is a statement from the IBSSA website:

We are excited to help guide you in the upcoming academic year. Going forward, our goals include creating a cohesive union of students that transcends international borders and embraces our diversity.

We hope to achieve this by embracing everyone’s individuality such that no student is seen as a product of a country but as a product of their unique experiences, interests and goals. Additionally, we hope to create a medium and opportunities for cultural exchange so that all students can hope to become truly global citizens.

Lastly, we hope to encourage an environment that creates fun. While every student has come to Brandeis IBS to receive an education, the experience must be both academic and extracurricular. To become well-rounded individuals, students should participate in events outside the classroom in order to build lasting connections and strong social skills.

We encourage everyone to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. Your time at Brandeis IBS is your opportunity to develop who you are and what you hope to achieve.
