The September 2008 financial crisis and the 2011 Arab Spring demonstrated the fundamental and frequent changes that our economy and society are experiencing. The Arison School of Business educates business managers in how to lead and succeed in such times of turmoil.
Our students grow not only professionally, but also in their managerial and leadership skills. They learn not only the standard core concepts of business education, but also the most advanced ideas and tools. They are exposed not only to theories, but also to real world business examples and insights.
Our professors are world-renowned scholars and practitioners who are experts not only in their fields, but have also lectured at the world’s top universities. They are not only leading scholars, but also outstanding lecturers who view the education of future business leaders as a privilege.
Our program is innovative and is continually updated to reflect new developments in business education and the global arena. We have recently launched an exciting and promising new track within our global MBA program – Innovation and Entrepreneurship. This new track is based on the expertise and success of the Arison School of Business in both innovation and entrepreneurship. For example, during the last year three hi-tech companies that were established by students of the undergraduate Zell Program were successfully sold (i.e., exit).
Our program is international in many dimensions (e.g. students, professors, specific courses and trips). Studying in a program with an international student body gives participants a significant advantage in developing international connections and in discovering global business opportunities. The program also provides students with the practical tools and theoretical knowledge needed to establish and manage businesses as well as to develop and implement business initiatives on an international scale.
