About

Established 40 years ago (1978), the School of Business Administration pioneered academic studies fully recognized by the Israeli Council of Higher Education, yet outside established state-subsidized universities. With 2,500 students enrolled this year, it is today the largest academic school of business in Israel.

The School offers Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs based on a combination of a theoretical and a “hands-on”, dynamic approach, adaptable to changing requirements in terms of both content and methodologies. Accordingly, its faculty also comprises leading experts from both the academe and the business world.
