About Us - General Information
The Technion Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management was established in 1958 and today is one of Israel`s leading management training programs. The Faculty`s graduate program was formed in 1977. Until 1995, the Faculty offered only a thesis-based Masters of Science degree in Industrial Management. Today, the Faculty has established a state-of-the-art MBA program focusing on the management of technology-based firms. The program has been designed around three primary objectives:
- To provide Israel's high tech industry with the managerial expertise necessary to develop and grow;
- To provide Israel's engineers and scientists with a program where they can learn the skills necessary to either assume a managerial role in an existing high tech firm or to establish a successful high tech startup; and
- To provide those managers lacking a science or technology background with the opportunity to learn more in these areas so they can enter technology management.
