Doing Business in Israel

Run 4-5 times annually, Doing Business in Israel (DBI) is a 9-day, 36-contact hour seminar designed to introduce international MBA teams from partner schools into Israel's high-tech and entrepreneurship sectors. DBI's versatile & diverse learning environment integrates the field and the classroom. Participants learn about the dynamics of the Israeli economy and business environment through multiple perspectives: theoretical background lectures on Israel's macroeconomic setting and economic/business sectors; case studies representing Israeli companies at different lifecycle stages, such as Babylon, Given Imaging and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems; company and startup visits; talks with executives, serial entrepreneurs, and government officials.


Over 500 students from leading business schools, such as UCLA, NYU, ESADE, Booth and Ross have taken part in the program, either in designated groups from specific schools or integrative ones affiliated with different institutions.

The Program frames the central aspects of doing business in Israel within the context of the country's high-tech and entrepreneurship sectors. Students gain a comprehensive view into the Israeli business environment, integrating academic perspective and insights with a hands-on introduction into the dynamics of the business field.

The Program offers an experiential educational setting, based on a combination of teaching methodologies:
