US Business Students from NH Return from Israel with Lesson of a Lifetime Featured

HANOVER, N.H., Seventeen students of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College returned to New Hampshire this weekend after getting a once-in-a-lifetime, on-the-ground lesson of daily reality in Israel.

Ten men and seven women of the Tuck school explored a different side of Israel for eight days this month, supported by the New York-based organization Israel & Co., which aims to generate greater understanding of and appreciation for Israel among global leaders and rising leaders. They are currently working with top graduate schools in the fields of business, law, and public policy, collaborating with student and faculty trip leaders who have expressed interest in participating, and providing the support they need to design and implement a memorable, fun and meaningful Israel experience. Participants get to appreciate Israel in ways that appeal to them directly: MBAs learn about innovation and entrepreneurship, while law students learn about policy, conflict, and the legal system, as examples.

“Students saw for themselves that the real Israel bears little resemblance to the conflict zone that is portrayed in the media,” said Adam Kleinbaum, associate professor of business at Dartmouth, who led the delegation. “This visit was definitely a great experience and lesson for all of us.”

The select Tuck students experienced the thriving entrepreneurial culture of the so-called “start-up nation” at close range, meeting top executives of leading Israeli businesses from high-tech to bio-agriculture. They will be exposed to perspectives and ideas that may help them in their future careers. Beyond meeting business standouts, these students engaged with thought leaders in government, at think tanks and in the media. This group also enjoyed the rare opportunity of seeing a dramatic Israeli national election up close, with voting for Israel’s parliament taking place during their stay.

“It is gratifying to see the transformation that these young leaders go through while experiencing Israel for the first time,” said Gil Galanos, executive director, Israel & Co. “They will forever have an informed and positive lens through which they view Israel and great insight to share with their communities.”
