Students will gain value beyond the classroom through access to the Israeli business hub of innovation, hi-tech firms and start-ups, and networking with faculty and local students,” said Professor Yishay Yafeh, Dean of the Jerusalem School of Business Administration.

The 48-credit program will include advanced elective courses in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Global Aspects of Finance, and Globalization and Management.  Students will have the opportunity to take courses on Israeli society and culture as well as experience extracurricular activities including, tours, cultural and social events.

In addition, as part of the program, students will participate in a professional internship over all three semesters.
