The Fletcher School is the United States' first professional graduate school of international affairs. Since 1933 Fletcher's multi-disciplinary education in international relations, law, and business, has prepared the world's leaders to become innovative problem-solvers in government, private sector, and non-governmental organizations. The Fletcher School seeks to fulfill its mission in the most environmentally sensible way possible.
Established in 2007, the Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC) was founded with the purpose of bringing the world of business to the world. The IBGC offers executive education, custom research, consulting, conferences and speakers, as well as lab experiences such as the D-Prize venture poverty solution competition. Specific content areas of focus include Digital evolution, Inclusive business and sovereign wealth and global capital flows. The 2-year Master of International Business (MIB) is part of the IBGC's education portfolio. In May 2019, IBGC will launch the Global Business Administration degree, which meets the needs of highly talented, promising students whose circumstances preclude them from partaking in the traditional, in-residence graduate school experience. This digitally mediated program, which combines graduate-level study in business with international affairs, affords the opportunity to earn a degree using cutting-edge technology and production while remaining in the job market and without uprooting one's life.
