Israel (Izzy) Borovich
Dean and Professor at the School of Management and Economics, The Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo
Polytechnic Alumni Association - International Board of Directors (Term ending August 31, 2021)
As a proud alum who earned my bachelor’s (’67) and master’s (‘68) degrees from what was then known as the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, I have long felt fondness and gratitude towards the school. It has been my pleasure to serve in various capacities, including sitting on the management committee for several years and becoming deeply involved in setting up the Information System program.
Now a professor emeritus of Tel Aviv University and a former CEO and chair of El Al Airlines, I have decades of leadership experience in both academia and industry that I would like to use to benefit my alma mater. My goals would be to help the School of Engineering move forward, to further its ethos of innovation and entrepreneurship, and to ensure that its graduates are prepared to enter the modern workforce with all the skills and knowledge they need.
