Education Program


Our educational mission is based on a belief that human efficiency is the crucial factor in nations' reaching their full socio-economic potential. ISAC Center provides an international venue where participants learn not only from top Israeli academic and professional experts but also from each other.

The program was initiated in recognition of the need for a program specifically tailored to meet the challenges facing the leadership of today's Higher Education institutions. This advanced training seminar emphasizes structural and administrative reform and renewal as the key to a university's achieving long-term success. We view adaptability and a capacity for innovation and self-renewal as personal and professional attributes required of 21st-century university leaders.

Program Description

The training program takes a strategic approach towards developing and managing the resources and capabilities of the university. Organizational, political, financial, social and ethical factors affecting the university's long-term success will be considered.

Participants will benefit from lectures by internationally known Israeli academic experts and university leaders, case-study analyses, group discussions and workshops.

In addition, participants will enjoy personal and professional interactions with colleagues from around the globe.
