Dean's Welcome

Our program for international students offers high-quality business administration
studies in a friendly, stimulating environment. Our vision is to prepare the next
generation of business leaders by striving for professional excellence, innovation and
initiative. Our program provides a deep understanding of both theoretical and
practical aspects of management and is characterized by four distinctive factors.

First, practicality: our curricula demonstrate how to apply the most advanced
business theories in real life. Second, globalization: the program emphasizes
international and cross-cultural aspects. Third, interdisciplinary studies: our program
emphasizes broad, interdisciplinary thinking skills. Initiative and creativity are the
fourth factor, which is expressed in courses dedicated to developing these abilities.

A continual aspiration to excellence underlies all of the school’s work. This aspiration
is expressed in the selection of the school’s faculty members and students; innovative
teaching methods and tools; joint programs with key institutes around the world;
and the development of new, exciting programs, such as the Zell Entrepreneurship
Program. Another important element is the relaxed yet stimulating atmosphere on
campus, which along with group projects and social events helps students develop
relationships with each other and with faculty members.

A school’s quality can be measured by its alumni’s accomplishments. We are proud
of our alumni’s impressive success. Their education and talents have led them, with
the assistance of IDC Herzliya’s Career Development Center, to positions at leading
companies – in industry, financial institutions, government agencies and other areas
and to continue their education at first-rate academic institutions in Israel and abroad.
