Hebrew University is one of the top 100 universities worldwide, and among its prestigious institutions are the Faculty of Law and the Jerusalem School of Business Administration. Graduates of the Faculty of Law include Israeli attorneys general and Supreme Court justices.
Israel is also a global leader in social entrepreneurship and business innovation – and is known as the “Start-Up Nation.” HebrewU’s Rothberg International School (RIS) offers business-oriented programs that will provide you with applied knowledge, study tours of start-ups and accelerators, and (in some programs) internship placements. RIS even offers a Nonprofit Management and Leadership program that pays special attention to social entrepreneurship and social businesses.
