Andrea S. Hershatter, BBA program director and senior associate dean, is in Israel on behalf of the dean’s office, to take part in the iTrek Educator’s Trip. The program is presented by Israel and Co., a nonprofit that helps business leaders understand Israel’s contributions to the world’s stage. The voyage gives graduate business school faculty and senior administrators a firsthand look at the country’s innovation and entrepreneurship.

The educator’s tour includes one-on-one discussions with influential VCs, leaders of promising startups and global corporations, government officials, and others who are contributing to its reputation as a startup nation. The organization’s goal is to help leading business schools like Goizueta facilitate teaching MBAs about Israel’s entrepreneurial community and mindset.
