Message from The Dean

The School of Business Administration at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is Israel's premier academic business school and as such, it plays a central role in shaping the country's business and management leadership. Alumni fill a variety of senior positions in the public and private sectors.

The School's objective is to develop the future generation of business leadership in Israel, and to push the envelope of knowledge in the fields of business management. Students accepted to the School must meet exceptionally stringent entrance requirements that are appropriate for the level of excellence demanded of them by the School and by the Hebrew University.

The School seeks to provide its students with the thinking skills and analytical tools that will enable them to integrate successfully in all areas of management in the public or private sectors, and to pursue academic research if they so choose. The School, which stresses the ability to analyze and solve problems and to expand one's horizons, is especially suited to students who thirst for knowledge, and who seek intellectual stimulation and an exciting learning experience. As part of the Hebrew University, the School offers an encounter with diverse disciplines and a large part of its student body also pursues studies in other fields.

Today's executives have to cope successfully with fast-paced changes in an international business environment and deal with high levels of uncertainty. To meet these challenges, graduates of the School are expected to develop an innovative, creative and global orientation. They must be able to analyze complex problems in real time and be capable of implementing their decisions under complicated, often ambiguous conditions. The School addresses these challenges and prepares its students to handle them.

In addition to its commitment to top-tier education, the School puts an emphasis on quality research. The School's academic faculty members are outstanding researchers in their fields whose work is published in the world's leading professional journals and whose opinions have influence on economic policy and public discourse in Israel.

The Hebrew University's Mount Scopus campus is located adjacent to Jerusalem's Old City and not far from the government ministries and the Har Hahotzvim high-tech district. Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, the site of fascinating encounters between different cultures and between the past and present, offers a captivating study environment and an opportunity for new experiences at the same time as one prepares for a challenging career.
