Jorge Concha Visits Reichman University

January 2023

McDonnell Scholar Jorge Concha recently traveled to McDonnell Academy partner institution Reichman University as part of the Olin Business School MBA degree programming. 39 students participated in the joint WashU-Reichman University International Venture Advising course. Programming included a 7-day onsite course in Tel-Aviv in which students attended entrepreneurship classes, worked hand-in-hand with Israeli start-ups and corporate companies, and engaged with Reichman University students and Israeli start-ups at site visits activities and networking events.

As part of the course, Jorge met with KappaSense, a solution provider of Capacitive Encoders, seeking to make a significant contribution to our customers by delivering innovative sensing solutions. KappaSense is one of the 8 Israeli companies that Olin MBA students are advising in several aspects, like strategy, innovation, ESG, and operations among other challenges, during the spring semester as a continuation of the course.

Jorge says an additional interesting aspect of this course is the unique opportunity for 1st and 2nd-year full-time MBA students across cohorts in WashU to network and engage in the same class.
