Israel Summer Business Academy
The Israel Summer Business Academy (ISBA) is a once-in-a-lifetime, six-credit hour educational experience for students interested in innovation and entrepreneurship.
This unique opportunity, open to undergraduate students of all faiths and beliefs, allows you to study and immerse yourself in the Israeli business environment. You’ll learn about entrepreneurship and innovation through coursework, speakers and company visits.
ISBA is a collaboration between Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis and the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya, Israel. This program offers a rare chance for students from all kinds of backgrounds to learn firsthand about business in Israel, a country that has built itself around entrepreneurship. ISBA is launching in summer 2014.
Why Study Business in Israel?
- 65% of startups in Israel last more than five years.
- Israel has more startups per capita than any other country in the world.

This nondenominational program is open to undergraduate students of all faiths and beliefs. The program is targeted toward rising sophomores, and juniors; and all students must have a 3.0 GPA. You do not need previous business coursework or knowledge of Israel to participate.
