STUDY IN ISRAEL

Educational Opportunities in Israel

Israel offers many opportunities for people who want to continue their education while spending time in Israel. It has excellent universities and colleges which offer fully accredited undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as short-term study abroad programs. The options range from programs taught in English to students from around the globe to programs in which international students can study in Hebrew alongside Israelis.

 

Bar-Ilan University offers a one-year international MBA program, which is taught entirely in English. The program offers its participants a unique, multifaceted experience – the opportunity to be taught by a distinguished faculty drawn from the local and international academic community and to study together with other individuals from around the world. Bar-Ilan has developed a challenging curriculum that is international in scope, intimate in scale, and designed to prepare students to succeed in the new millennium. Students are given a global perspective together with real-world applications that allow them to master the complexities of today’s increasingly sophisticated world of business. Despite the program’s dramatic growth since its establishment, its warm and friendly environment has been sustained. Its distinguished faculty includes applied researchers, inventors, entrepreneurs, general managers, financial directors, and bankers. In addition to faculty in residence, the program attracts notable visiting lecturers and educators from business and industry worldwide.

 

The Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, which offers the only three-year B.A. programs in Israel that are taught entirely in English, is launching an international MBA program that will be taught in English in fall 2007. Though it is based on IDC Herzliya’s successful Hebrew-language MBA program, it includes many innovative courses and workshops on conducting business in the global arena that were developed especially for the program by senior lecturers at the world’s leading business schools.

 

The Ginsburg-Ingerman Overseas Student Program at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is a great choice for students who want to spend time in Israel outside the North American bubble and have an authentic Israeli experience. The program makes an effort to help students integrate into the university by taking classes, sharing apartments, and participating in extracurricular activities with Israelis. Ben-Gurion University offers a variety of summer, semester, or year options to cater to the academic and social demands of students of all ages. In fall 2007, it is launching a unique environmental studies program for undergraduates in cooperation with the Arava Institute at Kibbutz Ketura. The year-long program exposes students to the environmental problems facing the Negev and the unique solutions Israel is developing to address them. The program looks at environmental issues through the lens of Jewish values.

 

The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology allows students pursuing degrees in engineering and hard sciences to broaden their educational experience by taking specialized classes in their disciplines in Israel. After participating in an intensive Hebrew-language course, international students join Israeli students in the Technion’s classrooms. A variety of special services are available to help international students keep up with the Hebrew lectures.

 

Finally, no description of study options in Israel would be complete without mentioning the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, whose Rothberg International School has been a magnet attracting students from dozens of countries for decades. The international school offers courses in French, Spanish, and Russian, in addition to Hebrew and English.
