There are lots of exciting updates coming from the “business section” of Fletcher lately!

Regular blog readers are surely familiar with the Master of International Business (MIB) program. The MIB has long been a “have it all” opportunity for aspiring business professionals, offering not only the rigor of a traditional MBA but also a focus on sustainable business in an international context that’s unique to Fletcher. By studying international business through the lens of environmental preservation, social equity, inclusive growth, and good governance, MIB graduates enter the professional marketplace with a global frame of reference that a traditional MBA can’t provide.

In addition, the new STEM-designated Quantitative Methods (QM) track of the MIB is now accepting applications for fall 2023 enrollment. The MIB:QM provides a specialized curriculum for students with an interest in developing deep quantitative and data skills (and, for non-US nationals, it comes with the opportunity to qualify for an additional two-year STEM extension of their Post-Completion OPT work permission).

It’s also the time of year in which the Fletcher D-Prize Poverty Solutions Venture Competition gets going. The D-Prize is one of my favorite annual Fletcher events, and it’s reliably a showcase for the great veins of innovation and entrepreneurship that course through the student body. I will be sure to keep blog readers updated on this year’s award process!

I’ll close by highlighing an upcoming virtual event that shouldn’t be missed by anyone with an interest in the above, or any other dimension of international business at Fletcher. Join Senior Associate Dean of International Business and Finance, Executive Director of the Institute for Business in the Global Context, and Professor of Practice Bhaskar Chakravorti, along with current MIB students, on Monday, October 17 at 10 AM EDT for a discussion of all things Business@Fletcher. This is a great opportunity to learn more about new degree programming and advantages of studying business in an international affairs context. Please register for the event with this link.
