International Executive MBA Program in English
Welcome To The New World of Business
In today's rapidly-changing political, economic and business environments your career success depends on your ability to identify and understand what's coming and then acquire relevant knowledge and appropriate capabilities to face the future. The balance of regional economies, markets and business opportunities is undergoing a metamorphosis. While the USA's global hegemony is in a state of decline and Europe tries to cope with its own crises and doubts, East Asia is steadily growing in importance. The People's Republic of China has already overtaken Japan to become the world's second-largest economy, and India has a huge growth potential.
For Israeli companies, this provides new business opportunities and unexpected threats, plus a greater variety of competitors and potential partners in the global marketplace. To help you plan and prepare for the emerging managerial challenges, Haifa University's Faculty of Management offers a unique International Executive MBA Program in English. The goal of the program is to provide students with the essential knowledge and skills that will help them advance in their careers and become better managers in the increasingly dynamic, complex and competitive environment. The Program has a global vision with a regional emphasis on doing business in East Asia (China, India and Japan).
The Faculty of Management
The University of Haifa's Faculty of Management is recognized as a pioneer in designing new and unique MBA programs in Israel, with its International Executive MBA program in English established in 2003. The innovative objectives of the Faculty have been achieved while consistently maintaining excellence in terms of course content, teaching faculty, students and administrative staff. To achieve our goals, we maintain close relationships with researchers and business communities in Israel and abroad.
The International Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) program in English at the Faculty of Management, University of Haifa, is modeled on some of the world's most successful business schools programs. This program incorporates leading-edge principles and practices of modern management education, and is taught by world renowned scholars in the field.
The program in English is offered to students from diversified backgrounds. We believe that this heterogeneity contributes to a fruitful academic atmosphere in the classroom, and provides an opportunity to engage in extensive cross-cultural interaction.
High academic standards, along with the maturity, experience and heterogeneity of our students, have created a superb learning environment that is highly productive and immensely enjoyable. You are invited to join, and prepare yourself for a career in international management.

While students come from varied professional, personal and academic backgrounds, they share a great deal in common: maturity, managerial experience, outstanding academic ability and an entrepreneurial spirit. The diversity of the participants creates a challenging and stimulating intellectual environment. The projects assigned in the program will reflect the creativity that results from the meeting of diverse cultures.
The Haifa International executive MBA Program in English is designed to be completed in about 16 months, over seven periods of eight weeks each, with additional extended workshops and seminars. This is an intensive part-time program with regular classes on Thursdays from 15:00-21:00, and on Fridays from 08:00 to 14:00. Attendance is compulsory in all sessions. This schedule allows students to successfully balance investment in their personal career development, with the necessity of work and the maintenance of family relationships.
The Haifa MBA program is unique in that each cohort studies together throughout the program, sharing the same stimulating intellectual challenges. The University of Haifa will grant a number of scholarships to qualified candidates based on merit.
For those students wanting a taste of real international experience, there will be an optional extra: Joint International Seminar and/or Business Study Trip abroad. This is presently organized in cooperation with the University of Tongji in Shanghai, one of the leading Universities in China.
