    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.

  • Sharon Appelman

    2002 Senior Vice President Neuberger Berman

    "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."

  • Shara Grifenhagen Ellenbogen

    2006 Marketing Director Ariel Marketing

    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.

  • Tatiana Shchertsovsky
