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 enterpreneurship, as well as Jewish culture.
It was wonderful. The part time program allowed me to learn more about Israel as well as its people in addition to my studies.
I loved it so much.
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.
Great content, great instructors and great group.
A lot of fun!
Bar-Ilan’s IMBA program gives you the technical tools and networking context in order to accelerate your career.
Was amazing, I learned a lot, and met a lot of really cool people.
Great experience with a diverse student body. Made some lasting friends and looking forward to staying in touch with new ones....
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.
"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."
The business strategy classes taught were the most influential classes of my Bar Ilan experience. Thank you!
This program brought me to this amazing country, taught me how to do business strategically, opened my eyes to see this colorful world and gestated my precious dreams and beliefs in my mind. If I had a chance to choose again, this program would be my choice for a second time.
The one-year study experience opened my eyes to the business world. I gained the experience and knowledge necessary to advance in my career..
I learned a great deal in a real world atmosphere
The ability to work so intimately with both students and teachers from all over the world is what set Bar-Ilan apart for me. I was exposed to an array of new ideas, and made friendships that will last a lifetime. Also studying in Israel is pretty great!”
