Technion: Israel Institute of Technology
Technion was founded in 1924 in Haifa, Israel. As Israel's oldest and premier institute of science and technology, the Technion has been an active and leading participant in Israel's establishment and development. In part due to Technion's contributions, Israel is now recognized as one of the world's most prominent high-tech innovators, and has been called the second Silicon Valley. The faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management was established in 1958, and the MBA program focuses on the management of technology based firms.
