Gies College of Business | Groups




Gain hands-on consulting experience. Each brigade is given an objective, a   specific   purpose   for going   into   a community. It is their mission to assess a   specific   need,  conduct   home interviews, and work together to build a comprehensive solution.  They then present their solution to the community and  provide  next  steps  for the community members to take. Through this hands-on experience, our members gain a valuable insight into real life consulting.


Our members form impactful relationships with fellow club members, faculty advisers, and the Global Brigades staff.  We build a community based on a goal of positive social change.


During a brigade, our members immerse themselves within the local culture. This cultural immersion experience is an experience of a lifetime. However, the impact of culture extends far beyond an individual brigade. Global Business Brigades itself promotes a culture of understanding, education, and teamwork.
