It was a unique experience to study the IMBA in Bar-Ilan. For a Chinese student, it is one of the best ways to get to know Israel, its innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as Jewish culture.
I learned a great deal in a real world atmosphere
I loved the community and relationships that came out from my time at Bar-Ilan. I learned valuable real-world skills and strategies that I implemented later on working at and scaling a world-class startup.
This was the first time that I studied and lived in a foreign country for such a long time. Thanks to this IMBA program, I have improved myself so fast in many areas. I feel that this year of studying at Bar-Ilan was a precious gift of life.
Diversity and high caliber classmates and professors really made the experience very worthwhile. There is no better place than Israel to fully understand the impact of innovation and disruption. Highly recommended.!
My experience in the Bar-Ilan University IMBA program gave me the tools to look at many aspects of the business world. It was enjoyable to meet and discuss matters with my classmates who came from such varied backgrounds.
"My undergraduate degree was in music performance, so the IMBA program represented a dramatic change in direction. However, I was delighted to discover an ability in certain subjects (statistics and economics) that I hadn't anticipated. I felt supported and encouraged by the staff and professors throughout the degree program. The knowledge I acquired during the MBA program has informed a lot of the work I have since performed as a financial planner and investment professional in New York City."
I gained a profound understanding of operating a business on a global scale. I have since built strong business relationships overseas and remain grateful for the opportunity that helped me get where I am today.
My MBA experience was a great launching pad for my career. I learned a tremendous amount of business knowledge from the professors, especially in the finance classes. In addition, working in groups and presenting to the class on multiple occasions honed my business skills and broadened my career expectations.
It was an honor to graduate in the very first IMBA class. We had fantastic lecturers. I have leveraged my MBA many times throughout my career. Today I work at a multinational Fintech company.
I loved the fact that I was studying with Chinese students. I made such great friends and business connections. Would not have gotten that opportunity anywhere else!
Very good experience and finance classes were excellent!
I made aliyah in 2005 with the idea that I'd "see how things go." My only plan was to take the year and do the IMBA at Bar-Ilan to give me something productive to do and help me sharpen my skills to enter the Israeli workforce. Coming from a non-profit background in the US, the classes and group work helped build a strong foundation for me. I made some amazing friends that year and build connections along the way which have helped me tremendously in my career as a marketing professional here in Israel. The IMBA helped me in my transition from non-profit to private sector and from life in the US to my new life in Israel. I'm grateful for the friends, connections, skills and knowledge I gained from the program.
The program accelerated my career by broadening my business vision and boosting my entrepreneurial skills. This experience is invaluable.
I learned a lot and grew from the entire experience. Well recommended.
