Global Up – The Multinational Executives’ Forum
Israel has many companies with global operations. Today, businesses opportunities are often to be found by expanding abroad to traditional and to new markets, in a reality that obliges organizations and managers to develop special abilities and skills. Many research studies show that the key to success is to be found in adopting new managerial methods that relate to the challenges of management in a broad range of markets and cultures.
The Hurvitz Institute has set itself the objective of answering the need arising from the field for academic enrichment, and to provide the knowledge, tools and methodologies that will be useful to managers of multinational operations. To this end it has established Global Up as a forum for dialogue and exchange of knowledge between senior executives and academics – to enhance and improve the ability of managers to contend with the challenges of the global arena and to help to exploit the business and managerial potential of companies throughout the world.
