Israel: "Entrepreneurship and Innovation:
The Israeli Model" Short-term Exchange
with Tel Aviv University
Is this program for me?
The Coller School of Management is the top business school in Israel and the only Israeli academic institution to be awarded the international accreditation of the AACSB (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). With over 10 programs of study the Coller School of Management prepares its students for leading positions in business and public institutions in various sectors of the ever changing Israeli and global economy.
Israel is known as the "Start-Up Nation" and this program will reveal the forces which drive its entrepreneurship. Tel Aviv University's Coller School of Management
(TAU) will offer a unique synthesis between state of the art academic studies and practical, hands-on experience with the Israeli high-tech industry and its leaders.
Academically, the connecting thread of the Doing Business in Israel (DBI) program
will be a set of Coller School of Management case series on strategy issues of Israeli firms. The cases reflect the Israeli economy by concentrating on companies from different industries, at different lifecycle stages, and different in size. The study of each of these cases will be led by a guest lecturer from among the company's executives and will include a field trip to the company.
Background lectures will focus on the Israeli macroeconomic environment, the banking and finance system, cultural aspects of doing business in Israel, and the integration of the Arab and ultra-orthodox population into the Israeli economy.
The program includes company visits, guest lectures, case studies, networking dinners, and accommodation in the heart of Tel Aviv.
This program is restricted to GW MBA students.
3 credits are awarded for successful completion of the program. GWSB graduate students must earn at least a B equivalent in order to receive credit for the course taken at TAU. Grades earned through a GWSB short-term exchange will not count towards a student's GW GPA.
This program fulfills general elective credit for MBA programs. Students may petition to have study away courses count towards Graduate School of Business Certificates or other Master's degree requirements by speaking with their academic advisor.
