Winter Session

Winter Session

We offer a number of short-term courses in December and January, which are open to those who need a break from the cold winter climates of the North, as well as students from the South who are on summer break. You can take these two- to three-week courses for credit, and experience Israel on the ground and at its greenest. 

Israeli & International Law: Mishpatim Seminar

This course introduces students to the Israeli legal system, while focusing on current issues at the core of the Israeli legal debate. As a participant, you’ll examine key issues related to the identity of the Israeli state – including Jerusalem, interaction with the Palestinian population in Israel and in the Occupied Territories, and the status of refugees. You’ll learn both in an academic environment and via several field trips, allowing you to experience firsthand the workings of the Israeli legal system.

VC in Emerging Technologies: Investing in the Future (OurCrowd-InnovNation Program)

Deepen your knowledge of key concepts and the basic structures of venture-backed deals and gain insight into the ways that technologies such as AI, Bio-Engineering, Cyber, IoT, 3D printing, and blockchain will impact our world in the next decade through an exploration of various examples of investment opportunities in Israeli start-ups.

Start-Ups & Innovation: The Israeli Model

You’ll master the essentials of entrepreneurship and innovation via the first-hand experience of successful Israeli innovators. Meet with serial start-up founders, industry specialists, and senior personnel from innovative R&D centers, and learn practical models, tools, and methodologies for launching start-up companies.
