Updates from the International MBA Program

IMBA-east is the new west

Nanjing industrial delegation visits the University of Haifa. Professor Chalom Schirman, Head of the International MBA at the Faculty of Management and Dr Elka Nir, CEO of Carmel corporation received on June 22, 2017, a delegation of Nanjing China-Israel Innovation Center.


The 7 members of the delegation chose the University of Haifa to become better acquainted with Israel’s experience in building bridges between Academia and Industry. The University of Haifa’s International MBA is particularly well positioned for this purpose as it is the only IMBA in Israel entirely focused on Doing Business with/in East Asia. Professor Schirman also teaches at Tongji University in Shanghai.

The Haifa IMBA students had been in Shanghai for their Study Trip a few months ago where they met and worked with ECNU MBA students on projects commissioned by Israeli firms interested in expanding their activities in China. Each class of IMBA students carry on every year several business research projects for Israeli firms in the framework of the Joint Israel-China Business Seminar.
