Currently, there are only nascent initiatives in India among academic institutes, and particularly none in management institutes to create, share and disseminate knowledge in the relevant areas of Indo-Israeli business with an objective to create an informed cadre of managers, entrepreneurs and scholars.
IIMB is ideally positioned to start an Israel Centre, as it has ongoing academic collaborations and student exchange programmes with Israeli institutes of higher learning. Focused activities of the Israel Centre at IIMB will be aimed at stimulating, strengthening and sustaining Indo-Israeli academic-business interactions. Israel and the state of Karnataka, particularly Bangalore, are hubs for creativity and innovation, havens for start-up ecosystems and research. This centre, dedicated to Israel on the premises of IIMB, will help fulfil the talent and potential of both the sides to the fullest.
