The Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management maintains partnerships with a number of universities abroad that offer international study opportunities for Technion MBA students.
It is the only Israeli member of Yale’s Global Network for Advanced Management, which arranges semi-annual intensive one-week courses held simultaneously at a number of university schools of management worldwide. Students from participating universities may attend these courses at any of the other universities. The network also provides distance-learning courses for students at all the schools, and maintains a pool of case studies on a variety of subjects prepared by participating schools.
The program includes a joint global strategy project with the ESCP Europe Business School in Paris for students of both schools, which includes face-to-face teamwork in Israel and in France. A joint seminar in innovation and entrepreneurship is also held with the Rady School of Management at the University of California, San Diego.
Recently, the Technion MBA program has strengthened its links with the business administration program at the Jacobs Technion–Cornell Institute in New York, a joint venture between the Technion and Cornell University founded in 2011, which won the City of New York’s competition to create an applied sciences graduate school.
The Technion also partners with Shantou University in China’s Guangdong province. Together, and with support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, they founded the Guangdong-Technion Institute of Technology (Chinese: 广东以色列理工学院) in 2015, which focuses on research and innovation in engineering and life sciences.
On 27-28.11.19 (14: 00-20: 30), a workshop was held with outstanding students from Finland (Alto University) who are interested in entrepreneurship.
