The BGU MAGUL program equips students with a practical understanding of how Judeo-Christian ethics and values influence the above skill sets and substantive knowledge so that graduates are better prepared to build values-based organizational cultures, make ethical decisions, and transform individuals and organizations to make significant positive impacts upon both a locally-oriented and global society.
