Beyond the Classroom
Sharing Experiences and Insights While Studying
The Kellogg-Recanati International Executive MBA Program emphasizes teamwork as an essential part of the Executive MBA experience. In general, each class is organized in groups of four to five students who meet to discuss current coursework. Many class projects and case studies are assigned to study groups and require a significant amount of teamwork. Before the second year the groups are being rotated. Study groups are designed to maximize the diversity of skills found among teammates and create opportunities for peer learning.
The study group experience is further enhanced during the global elective weeks, when group forms from participants from all the programs at the global network. This is an exceptional opportunity to meet and interact with talented fellow-executives from every corner of the globe, building profound and dynamic personal networks that will last a lifetime.
A Lifelong Partnership with the Kellogg Global Network and Your Peers
Kellogg-Recanati students begin their second year by attending a two-week live-in module on Northwestern University's lakefront campus in suburban Chicago. Participants from all other Kellogg Global Network programs – WHU in Vallendar, Schulich in Toronto and HKUST in Hong Kong, join Kellogg-Recanati students from Tel Aviv, as well as those from the Kellogg Executive MBA programs in Evanston and Miami to make this module rich in international experience, insights and understanding. At the end of the module, not only has a great deal of learning taken place, but participants have immensely expanded their global network.
This networking opportunity is further enhanced throughout the second year of studies when each program invites participants in other programs of the Kellogg Global Network to study with their students. The Kellogg-Recanati program offers one such week where colleagues from other Kellogg programs are invited to study in Tel Aviv.

Building a Better Tomorrow
Kellogg Executive MBA students and alumni are valuable assets to their communities. On the 1st of April 2005, the Kellogg-Recanati Alumni Club launched its Kellogg-Recanati Cares initiative which includes several projects for the community and an ongoing "Bridge to Business" course at the Bialik-Rogozin school in south Tel Aviv.
