The program has a steering committee made up of industry professionals and headed by Raz Hyperman (COP of Direct Insurance). Members include Gil Bickel (CIO of SAP Labs Israel), Jimmy Schwarzkopf (Founder and Managing Partner of STKI, a leader in information systems), and Dalia Robinson (VP, Director of the Financial Solutions and Technology Division at Matrix).
The program has unique partnership agreements with leading players in the IS industry. For example, MTA has an academic partnership agreement with SAP for ERP training (the only one of its kind in Israel), an agreement with Methoda (developer of development and maintenance methodology) and IBM (concerning the Service Sciences program).
In 2010, a beta program will be offered for the first time (Knowledge Products seminar) for the development of IS-based products, providing experience in high-demand fields such as cloud computing (Microsoft Azure, Google, Amazon), mobile computing (iPhone, Google Phone), social computing (Facebook, Twitter) and virtual worlds (Second Life, WOW).
