A  Part-time MBA Program for Managers who need to cope with global and disruptive issues.
An International MBA that focuses on the largest and fastest-growing markets in the world.

Matan Vilnay, Israel's ambassador to China, recently wrote: "To support actual, responsible continued growth of productive business relationships that have long term potential, the Israeli market needs more experts on modern China in a range of topics, such as the economy and business administration." (INSS Insight, No. 906, March 19, 2017)

The International MBA Program of the University of Haifa empowers Israeli managers and business people to achieve this very goal.

For the past 10 years it has provided its graduates with an MBA degree that focuses on China and the Far East. Thus, several courses are specifically dedicated to in-depth study of the Business Culture in China, India, Korea and Japan.
