Founded in 1912 in Haifa, Israel, The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology – the oldest university in Israel known mostly for its degrees in science and engineering, has announced that, beginning in October 2013, it will launch its international “Start-uP MBA” program.

It makes sense, since Israel’s incredible reputation has resulted in it being dubbed as “The Start-Up Nation.”

The prestigious and highly coveted MBA degrees will be offered to those who best reflect Israeli entrepreneurship and innovation in the Israel.

The Technion’s Start-uP MBA program will incorporate in-demand internships in startup companies, while students will gain invaluable exposure to multinational high-tech corporations operating in and around Tel Aviv.

The program will be taught in English by Technion professors, as well as a number of high-powered guest lecturers and proven entrepreneurs, and will leverage international collaborations with leading business schools around the world.

The one-year international MBA program is available to candidates with two years of professional post-undergraduate experience who will be taught as the Technion’s new campus in Tel Aviv.

”The entrepreneurial and innovative spirit is embedded in the DNA of Israeli culture, and combined with the scientific and technological strengths of the Technion, the Start-uP MBA program will offer significant added value to graduates,” said Professor Miriam Erez, vice dean of MBA programs at the Technion.

“As the original start-up nation, Israel has nurtured numerous successful companies over the past decades,” added Professor Dovev Lavie. “Many of these businesses are led by Technion graduates. We offer unparalleled insight and provide students from around the globe with first-hand experience in entrepreneurship and innovation.”

Believe it or not, Israel has more companies listed on NASDAQ than those from all of Europe, Japan, China, India, South Korea and Singapore combined.
