Dr. Harel’s Exchange Week at LBS

Dr. Ronen Harel from the Department of Business Administration of the Ben Gurion University of the Negev visited LBS from April 16 to April 20 as part of the Erasmus+ lecturer exchange program. The purpose of his visit was to shadow LBS lecturers and implement best practices in his home institution. During his stay, Dr. Harel had the opportunity to meet our staff and faculty, as well as attend the lectures in “Critical Thinking”, “Operations Management”, “Organizational Change”, “Managerial Accounting” and “Leadership Capabilities”. Moreover, in exclusive meetings with our Directors of BA and MA studies, our Executive Director and the LBS International and Research departments, he gained insights into the operations and daily work at LBS.

It was a pleasure to spend the week at LBS. I liked very much the lectures I attended. I was impressed by your method of study regarding the group work in each lesson, as well as the level of involvement of students in the class - the lessons were at a fairly high interactive level. The interesting fact I discovered about LBS is the deep connection to the Jewish heritage and Israel. In light of my visits to LBS, and as a key takeaway from my exchange, I intend to improve the level of student involvement during my lessons at Ben Gurion University.
