The International MBA in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is designed to train a select group of students with the knowledge and skills for successfully adapting to emerging business trends. Students acquire tools for creating services and products that are suitable for global markets. They benefit from this unique opportunity to study in Israel, a country widely viewed as a hub of innovation, hi-tech firms, and start-ups. In addition, students gain value beyond the classroom through a professional internship, networking with faculty and exploring the Israeli business hub.
Students have the benefit of learning from internationally acclaimed experts, who are at the forefront of research in their fields. A rich extracurricular activities program is offered, including tours, cultural and social events, lectures and more.

In addition, interested participants will have the opportunity to take courses on Israeli society and culture.

Knowledge of English: Candidates who did not previously study at an educational institution where the language of instruction is English must submit official TOEFL scores or the equivalent.

As part of the international MBA, students will take part in a year-long internship at companies with proven evidence of entrepreneurship and innovation. The main goal of the internship course is to allow students to analyze business processes while gaining practical experience at these leading technological and consulting firms.
Interns will be positioned in one of several organizations with which our program collaborates, such as Intel, Amdox, SIT, Lotem and Linkedin, where they will spend one day a week, from October to July. They will take part in organizational tasks and procedures, such as financial analyses and procedures, assisting in HR-related issues, taking part in marketing efforts, joining research and development processes etc. Interns will also meet regularly at the university with the internship course teacher, in the form of an interactive workshop to discuss and analyze their experiences at the firm, using theoretical frameworks from business studies, providing meaningful links between theory and practice.
