Doing Business in Israel  (DBI) is an 11-day program that frames the central aspects of doing business in Israel within the context of the country’s booming high-tech and bio-tech economy and the emerging of global Israeli companies.

Academically, the connecting thread of the DBI program will be a set of Recanati Business School case series on strategy issues of Israeli firms. The cases reflect the Israeli economy by concentrating on companies from different industries, at different lifecycle stages, and different in size. The study of each of these cases will be led by a guest lecturer from among the company’s executives and will include a field trip to the company.

The program consists of approximately 40 contact hours of classes and workshops, three company visits, a visit to the Tel Aviv stock exchange, and tours of Israel, including an overnight stay at a kibbutz.

  • Credits: 3 credit units
  • Dates: January 1 – 10th 2013
