The majority speak more than one language and have lived and/ or worked in more than one country by the time of application.
As well as the foundation courses, lectures and workshops there are few unique program elements that allow you to focus on entrepreneurship and innovation at the Sofaer Global MBA:
The Delta Pre-Accelerator is the first pre-accelerator of its kind in Israel. Structured as an integrative academic course, Delta provides students with an opportunity to take an idea from concept to the initial stages of execution and to experience the true meaning of venture and entrepreneurship in practice. Leading entrepreneurs, innovators, and practitioners across Israel participate as mentors.
The Master Classes provide half-day immersive sessions focused on entrepreneurship, education and innovation. Each one brings in a prominent guest lecturer to deliver highly-focused content. Recent sessions included a workshop on innovation by the IBM Israel Innovation Center Manager, a special session on storytelling, and C-level presentations by an innovation and consulting veteran.
The Studio for Entrepreneurs guides entrepreneurial students through a unique personal process of self-discovery to locate their true passion and the barriers that can inhibit its pursuit. Participants will face experiences that emerge during an entrepreneurial journey to develop the ability to cope with difficulties and improve capabilities to recover from them. They will also learn how to use chaos and uncertainty to their advantage.
International Immersion Trips
Each year, select students studying in the Sofaer Global MBA Program take part in specialized international entrepreneurial immersion trips. Students take their ideas developed in the Delta Pre-Accelerator Program and connect with a new innovation ecosystem abroad in order to promote their startups and connect with hi-tech industry leaders and venture capitalists for venture opportunity and growth. The two-week program is designed to encourage and engage a new generation of Israeli entrepreneurs and innovators through classes, workshops, and training.
