IDC Herzliya was recently ranked high in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) – also known as the Shanghai Ranking, which ranks institutions of higher education around the world.


In the ranking of political science, Lauder School of Government was ranked in the cluster between 101 and 150.

In the ranking of psychology, Baruch Ivcher School of Psychology was ranked in the cluster between 201 and 300.

In the ranking of communications, Sammy Ofer School of Communications was ranked in the cluster between 201 and 300.


These rankings place IDC Herzliya alongside the world's leading universities and certainly among the top Israeli institutions of higher education. This achievement is even more acknowledgeable considering that many of the international institutions close to us in the ranking are renowned and well-known, whereas most of the schools at IDC Herzliya are younger than 20 years.

Prof. Uriel Reichman, President and Founder of IDC Herzliya and Prof. Alex Mintz, Provost, said that "We are very proud of these achievements and we wish to thank you – faculty, deans and administrative staff, and to express our appreciation for the dedicated work you are doing. We have no doubt that in the next few years IDC Herzliya will reach additional achievements in the international academic arena on its way to becoming Israel's first private university".
