A Word from the Dean
Prof. Moshe Zviran
Dear Students, Alumni, Faculty and Staff,
From its inception almost 50 years ago, the School of Management has been a hub for world-class research and teaching. Training generations of leaders who have helped define key areas in the Israeli private and public sectors, including business, government, and academia, the School is widely recognized as the foremost provider of management education in Israel.
The School’s outstanding reputation and global reach are the result of its steadfast commitment to advancing uncompromising excellence. Over the years we have consistently worked to push our academic standards higher, while at the same time developing new programs and diversifying our teaching methodologies so as to provide our students with a rich, multidisciplinary learning experience. Nurturing our students and breaking new grounds in research have been our remarkable faculty, an extraordinary group of scholars, teachers and practitioners who boast a powerful combination of top academic training coupled with hands-on business experience.
Our achievements do not tempt us to relax our efforts. In order to continue delivering our students the kind of education that will enable them to navigate their way to success in a world characterized by constant change, our School has seen dramatic growth in recent years. Among other things, we have recruited dozens of stellar Israeli researchers from universities abroad, established new research institutes and centers, and launched new programs in such areas as technology management, entrepreneurship and innovation, big data and business analytics, real estate management, global business, financial management. We have also established a Career Management Center and significantly expanded our student exchange opportunities with leading schools abroad.
Today, we rank among the world’s leading business schools in a variety of criteria, including the quality and scope of our faculty, the level of our academic research, and the caliber of our students. No wonder our MBA program was recently ranked 11th in the world for producing VC-backed entrepreneurs. We are also the first business school in Israel accredited by AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), the prestigious global network of business schools maintaining the highest standards of achievement.
It is my intention to continue the momentum by striving for new levels excellence, even stronger relations with industry and the wider business community, the development of new state-of-the-art programs, further internationalization of our academic curriculum, closer ties with our more than 24,000 alumni, and the advancement of issues of social and global responsibility.
Please don’t hesitate to stop by my office, send me your feedback and ideas, and help us provide a world-class education for the leaders of tomorrow.
