The Fletcher School’s Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC) was founded in recognition of the need for a new approach to the study of international business and capital markets—one that prepares global business leaders with essential "contextual intelligence." Through four core activities—research, dialogue, education, and lab—the Institute provides an interdisciplinary lens through which global markets and the underlying drivers of change can be understood. This is also a forum where original thought leadership, professional education and conversations among peers can be fostered.
Tufts' Institute for Global Leadership is an incubator of innovative ways to educate learners at all levels in understanding difficult and compelling global issues. We develop new generations of critical thinkers for effective and ethical leadership who are able to comprehend and deal with complexity, to bridge cultural and political differences and to engage as responsible global citizens in anticipating and confronting the world's most pressing problems.
The Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship catalyzes entrepreneurship for broad-based prosperity in low-income countries. The Center was founded on the belief that economic progress and good governance in low-income countries emerge from entrepreneurship and innovations that empower ordinary citizens. The Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship was founded at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2007 through a multi-million dollar gift from Legatum Group, a global investment firm.
