I could not be happier with my decision to study on the Sofaer MBA program.
I picked the Sofaer MBA program firstly because I wanted to expand my international network, and Tel Aviv University allowed me to do that. With classmates from all over the world, it was interesting to learn about different cultures and styles.
Secondly, I wanted to fill in the gaps in all aspects of the business world. I learned so much about finance and the accounting world; I even participated in a 6-month intensive consulting project for a real company that gave me incredible insights into how a company operates. The experiences and skills I learned are lifelong and will continue leading me and my career in the right direction.
I enjoyed living in Tel Aviv so much so that I ended up joining a Sequoia-backed start-up here called Oribi.io. My role is scaling up their Business Development and Sales Team.
The Sofaer Program allowed me a deep dive into the Israeli high-tech ecosystem, and I'm super proud to continue on this trajectory for years to come.
