​Dean's Welcome

 

The 21st century is a time of change and uncertainty. But one thing is for sure: the pace of change that affects the reality of our lives on all levels will continue to be rapid and extensive.

 

In such a reality, education in entrepreneurship and innovation is essential to successfully deal with the changing world, and reinvent ourselves many times throughout our lives. This is the education we seek to provide at the Adelson School of Entrepreneurship - an education that involves creative thinking, the ability to innovate, and understand project planning and resource mobilization processes, the courage to initiate and dare and the mental strength to face failures.

 

The mission of the School of Entrepreneurship is to train the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovation leaders in Israel. The school strives to strengthen Israel's brand as a startup nation and lead the Israeli entrepreneurship activity in Israel and around the world.

 

The school's interdisciplinary approach combines an academic curriculum alongside real - world experience, mentoring and opportunities for networking in the international entrepreneurial community.

 

The curriculum is constantly evolving based on the feedback received from influential students, graduates and key personas in the global world, to ensure that it meets the needs and challenges of the 21st century. The program includes relevant courses for the creation and launch of a business venture, such as strategic and innovative thinking, management skills, investment fundamentals, technological trends and many more.

 

Students will acquire, whether through traditional courses, extracurricular activities on campus or hands-on interaction, the skills they need to have to become a part of the thriving global community of world-changing entrepreneurs and opinion leaders.

 

In doing so, we continue the long-standing tradition of groundbreaking entrepreneurship at our unique university whose graduates have so far established hundreds of ventures including:
