MD/MBA

Earn your MBA and MD in four years

MSIH is thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity to expand your ability to make a difference in the world as a physician. In this day and age, no matter where you are working–whether in a large medical center or in remote locations–physicians need to understand the infrastructure of medical care and to be equipped with the management skills necessary to succeed. The unique MD/MBA will provide the medical student the opportunity to acquire the business acumen they need to reap full benefits of their medical education, all in four years.


The MBA highlights innovation, entrepreneurship, and social enterprise on the international level, as well as on the local level, tapping into the entrepreneurial spirit and momentum driving the incredible growth of the Negev region. Our unique, integrative program, taught in English, couples a rigorous theoretical and practical academic MBA program with professional development opportunities, including field trips and a one-of-a-kind internship experience (optional) that will put you on the map of the Start-Up Nation–all in the first year of your MD degree!


The MBA is a program of the Guilford Glazer Faculty of Business Management (GGFBM) at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, which is a hub of interdisciplinary research and scientific innovation. The GGFBM offers an impressive array of academic degree programs and is committed to social and environmental responsibility that responds to both local and global challenges.
