MBA students help develop future of Kodak with alumna Einav Aharoni-Yones, Manager of Kodak Israel
This summer Kodak Software and Solutions and Tel Aviv University launched a collaboration project to help the future of one of the world's best known brands.
Kodak’s Israeli R&D center develops future technologies for the company, particularly revolutionary hardware and software nano-technologies for the printing world.
The aim of the Tel Aviv University-Kodak collaboration is to bring new solutions to the market.
“We are very excited to embark on a long term partnership with Tel Aviv University. Kodak is deeply involved in the Israeli market and we intend to further grow our business here,” said Eric Yves Mahe, President Software & Solutions, Eastman Kodak. “The collaboration with university offers us the opportunity to work with the most brilliant minds in the goal of bringing innovative solutions to the market and designing the future of Kodak.”
“This unique opportunity of taking part in a strategic project done for a multi-national company allows our students to bring to the table the skills and tools that they have been absorbing throughout their degree," said Dr. Iris Ginzburg, Head of the School of Management's MBA in the Management of Technology, Innovation & Entrepreneurship. We see this collaboration as an important step towards building the next leadership of the start-up nation”
In order to broaden the innovative solutions brought to the table, next year the Kodak-TAU partnership will open to students from the Sofaer International MBA, the School of Management's 1-year MBA that draws students from all over the world. Dr. Ginzburg, who as of next year will also head the Sofaer IMBA program, added, "We are proud to work with Kodak and think innovatively about their future."
