Dean's Welcome

The modern business world constantly presents managers with new challenges that require knowledge of a wide range of topics and an understanding of the international arena. The Arison School of Business strives to prepare executives and future business leaders for these challenges. To this end, we have developed an MBA program that consists of a high academic level and practical learning. The program is innovative, and it is continually updated to reflect new developments in business education and the global arena. It is created and taught by an internationally regarded faculty who has lectured at the world's best universities, such as the Wharton School, University of Michigan, Columbia University, Northwestern University, University of Chicago, NYU, Cornell and others. They bring the best and latest in international education and a strong commitment to quality teaching. Since the initiation of our MBA program in 2001, it has been considered one of the leading academic programs in Israel.

The Global MBA Programs are a new addition to our school and offers international students high-level MBA courses and the opportunity to study in Israel. There are two Programs which will be taught in English: Global Management MBA Program (GMBA) and Global Entrepreneurship MBA Program (GEMBA) and the emphasis is on conducting business in the global arena.

Studying in a program with an international student body will give participants a significant advantage in the formation of international connections and in discovering global business opportunities. It will prepare students with the practical tools and theoretical knowledge needed to establish and manage businesses, and to develop and implement business initiatives on an international level.

We expect that the Global MBA Program will be the leading program  both in IDC Herzliya and in Israel.
