Joint Seminar

The course provides students with a deeper understanding of the Chinese/Indian business, industrial, economic, social and political environment.

The Joint Seminar, based on bi-national team’s projects, creates an opportunity for Israeli and Chinese/Indian MBA students to gain practical experience of working together, producing a common ‘Consultancy Report’.

These bi-national teams could work on

  • projects commissioned by Israeli and/or Chinese/Indian companies that wish to investigate opportunities to expand their activities in the other market.
  • surveying an industrial branch in order to find potential collaboration between Israeli firms and Chinese/Indian firms.

Such “consulting job” includes the mapping of the industrial branch in both countries, the collection of relevant data and their analysis, a research on possible business cooperation between Israeli and Chinese firms in that branch, producing a written report including conclusions and recommendations and, finally, oral presentations of the said ‘Consultancy Report’.

Shanghai Study Trip (SST)

Shanghai, at the heart of the Yangtze Delta Economic region (producing over one third of the Chinese GDP), is the XXIst century’s most dynamic global business hub in the world.

It is also an important city for modern Jewish history, having been a safe haven for some 28,000 Jewish refugees from Nazi occupied Europe during WWII.

The Shanghai Study Trip is one of the most memorable courses in our curriculum and a good platform for business networking.

It includes (subject to change depending on availability and time constraints):

  • Visits of 4 firms in the great Shanghai area and meetings with Chinese managers
  • Visits of Chinese Industrial and R&D parks in Shanghai, Suzhou and Changzhou
  • Exchanges with some of the most reputed Shanghai MBA lecturers
  • Meetings with Chinese MBA students and graduates
  • Visit of Shanghai (including “Jewish Shanghai”) and of Suzhou (the Chinese Venice)
  • Culinary experience: tasting different Chinese cuisines
  • Shabbat dinner at Kehilat Shanghai with Jewish businesspersons from Israel, the US and Europe established in Shanghai

My Study Trip to Shanghai

By Veronika Loiferman, Haifa U International MBA graduate, Lily Class (2016-2017)

veronikaStudyTrip

The SST is undoubtedly the highlight of the International MBA Program. Eleven of us spent 8 exhilarating days in Shanghai and Suzhou. We were welcomed in 8 Chinese companies, from a huge State-Owned Enterprise (SOE) that builds infrastructure projects all over the world (including in Israel) to small start-ups in computer-assisted architecture and medical devices and to the China HQ of Nilit in Suzhou. We had enriching exchanges with senior managers of these companies and at FOSUN, one of China’s most successful private corporations in China that is already invested in several Israeli companies.

We were guests of Kehilat Shanghai where we met dozens of Israeli and Jewish businesspeople living and working in Shanghai. We attended useful presentations by Chinese MBA lecturers at Tongji University and by the deputy Consul General of Israel in Shanghai. We tasted different kinds of Chinese cuisine and learned to appreciate the originality and infinite diversity of the dishes. We had dinner with MBA graduates and students at ECNU (Haifa University partner in Shanghai) and had a chance to work with them on our projects in the Joint Seminar. We had a wonderful time at the best known Chinese circus. Of course, we had also time for shopping! Shopping in Shanghai is a rare experience and the organizers of the Trip are quite knowledgeable on the good places.

As a professional in the pharma industry, the SST organized for me a private fruitful encounter with an important Shanghai company in our field. Many other participants in the SST made promising professional contacts. Personal one-on-one contacts are the first necessary step for any kind of dealings in China.
