Examples of current and past programs

Entrepreneurship & Innovation (4 weeks):

This program focuses on entrepreneurial dynamics and examines Israeli entrepreneurial culture or “success formula” for creating a business environment ripe for innovation. Related subjects such as idea processing, crowd funding and entrepreneurial finance, social networks, big data, negotiations and others are explored through integrated case studies, start-up simulations, round table panel discussions with entrepreneurs, investors, policy makers and students, and site visits to start-up companies in Israel’s main high-tech hubs: Haifa, Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem.

Water Technology and Innovation (2 weeks) :

The curriculum focuses on the relationship between academia, industry and government that has contributed to Israel’s successful water-conservation industry. Faced with water scarcity and a growing population, the Israeli government enacted policies and advanced technological initiatives to maximize the country’s limited water resources. The result is a green and blooming environment, paralleling waterrich nations: Israel has successfully implemented desalination projects, operates one of the world’s best water supply systems, has one of the highest wastewater reuse rates, and is a leading developer and exporter of agricultural and water technology products.
