About Us

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 three core activities—education, research, and dialogue—the Institute provides an interdisciplinary lens through which global markets and the underlying drivers of change can be understood.  

IBGC’s Inclusive Growth Initiative supports programming, research and events which equip leaders, entrepreneurs and governments with the knowledge and tools necessary to create broad-based economic growth.
